Watermelon Salad

The August issue of Southern Living highlighted several recipes for watermelon. One recipe I thought was charming was a watermelon salad. Their version didn't necessarily fit our taste, but I made my own version to savor this summer fruit before we start rushing into the fall season. 

I'm really not sure why I called it Watermelon Salad, when really it's just..................watermelon. But the extra work seems like it should have a bigger name.

The original recipe included red and yellow watermelon (I used watermelon and cantaloupe because where-the-heck-do-you-buy-yellow-watermelon?), fresh lemon juice, sugar, vodka, raspberry rum, sea salt, and fresh mint. I omitted everything except the melon, sea salt, and fresh mint, and it was a great little addition to a collection of hors d'oeuvres at a party. Here are a few snapshots of the pretty summer dish:
