MINTY WATERMELON SALAD


Nothing can be more refreshing than this cool salad on a hot day in summer. As the watermelon is quite juicy and filling, a bowlful of it can really make a light lunch specially when you are dieting. Select the small  watermelon which is usually seedless.  The ingredients can be adjusted as per your taste. You can also add chaat masala if you like.


Ingredients:
Watermelon .... 1 (small and seedless variety )
Mint leaves ... few
Lemon juice .. 1 tbsp
Salt ........... 1/2 tsp
Roasted and crushed cumin seeds .. 1/2 tsp
Red chilli flakes or crushed black pepper .. a pinch


Method:
1. Cut the water melon into half.
2. Scoop out small rounds or cut it into pieces. You can make zig zag cuts on the rim of the water melon using a sharp knife.
3. Add few mint leaves.
4.Sprinkle all the mentioned ingredients for flavouring and toss lightly.
5. Fill the salad in the water melon shell.
Serve chilled.
