Mojito-Style Watermelon

Why eat plain watermelon, when you can have it mojito-style? Juicy pink watermelon with a bright citrus splash, bits of cool mint, and a sprinkle of sea salt. Mmm mmm good. It may be Autumn, but Summer is still shining through this delectable, cool treat!

These flavors are also a perfect match for a fresh juice or a cool smoothie! Even this morning, I added a bit of coconut milk and BAM! Smoothie-licious! 😉
