Lemony Minted Watermelon Salad

Simple but brilliant. This is all I want to eat now that it's consistently 95 plus and humid here in Delaware.

1/2 medium sized watermelon
juice from 1 lemon
pinch of sea salt
1-2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
a nice fistful of mint leaves
1-2 tsp sugar, optional

Carefully remove and discard the rind from your watermelon and cut the fruit into into bite sized pieces. Chop your mint into nice thin ribbons. In a large bowl, combine the melon with the mint, the lemon juice, just a drizzle of olive oil and a little pinch of sea salt. Gently mix until the mint is evenly distributed. Taste test. If your melon is nice and sweet on its own, skip the sugar. If your melon isn't as sweet as it ought to be, add just the tiniest sprinkle of sugar to give it a boost. Mix again and serve immediately.

Ok, go make this now. For real. You can thank me later!
