I never knew that melon, mint and lime went so well together! It's such a refreshing treat. I found that a small watermelon worked great with the amount of lime, sugar and mint suggested.

This was another recipe I was surprised about liking because I had never heard of this combo but now whenever I am cutting up a melon I either make the full recipe or at least throw in some chopped up mint. So yummy!

I made this recipe for a class picnic and everyone absolutely loved it! The mint and lime gave this dish a very refreshing flavor, perfect for those warm summer days! Will definitely be making this recipe again.
