Mojito Watermelon Salad


This salad is a refreshing complement to grilled or blackened strip or flank steak. Add cucumber for extra crunch, feta cheese for a sweet/salty contrast, or papaya and jicama for a colorful Latin-style treat.


  • 2 C seeded watermelon , cut into ¾-inch cubes
  • 1 large red heirloom tomatoe , cored and chopped
  • ¼ C fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • 2 T tequila (optional)
  • 2 t agave nectar
  • 1 T white wine vinegar
  • 2 T minced fresh mint
  • 3 T olive oil
  • pinch each salt and freshly-ground black pepper


  1. Place the watermelon and tomato pieces on a paper towel to absorb excess moisture.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice, tequila, agave nectar, vinegar, mint, salt, pepper and olive oil. Add the watermelon and tomatoes, toss well to coat and serve immediately.
