Watermelon Mojito Salad

This is my first try writing a blog post from my phone. I didn't even realize it was possible, but what can't smartphones do these days!
It's a simple one. Only 4 ingredients (3 if you make it virgin). Amounts can be adjusted according to your personal preference. I just eye-balled it and tasted as I went, so don't feel like you have to follow the recipe exactly. 

Serves 4 
4-5 cups watermelon cubed
1/2 lime (zest and juice) 
8-10 large mint leaves
1-2 oz white rum (we used Malibu) or to taste


In a large bowl, combine watermelon cubes (or get fancy and use a melon baller), lime zest and juice, and rum. 
Refrigerate for a few hours, stirring occasionally, or not if you didn't plan ahead. 
Lay mint leaves on top of one another and roll tightly. Slice thinly and sprinkle on salad.
Stir again and serve with a few mint leaves as garnish. 

Bring this to the next BBQ you get invited to. You might want to make a kid version and an adult version though!
