Simplest Red Fruit Salad ever & some of our favorite Summertime recipes!

Pin It
Life, our book and travel to foreign lands have kept us away. We have a guest post and several recipes waiting to be posted and shared with the world but today I need to work on the book -- so I'm posting a 4 ingredient treat in time for all those picnics, potlucks and BBQs coming up this weekend. This one is dedicated to that friend who always brings beer and salsa. This is a recipe* that even they can make.

But if you're more of a superstar than that -- you can click here to see a list of some of our favorite Summertime recipes and potlucking tips or you can check out some of these:

Of course, if you are firing up the grill this weekend we can't encourage you enough to try The Beer Can Tofurky! I know it seems a little intimidating but I hope this appetizing post by The Redundant Vegan will encourage you to take this vegan wonder on!

I have a great post lined up for tomorrow that I still need to edit the photos for so until then... enjoy this simple pleasure!

Simplest Red Fruit Salad 

  • 1 Small Watermelon (cubed - should make 3-4 cups) 
  • 1 Large Ripe Pomegranate
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Mint Leaves (diced)
  • Lime Wedges 

Open your pomegranate and gently remove all the seeds (arils) in a small bowl.

In a large bowl, gently toss watermelon, pomegranate seeds and mint and pour into an airtight container. Put the fridge for 3 hours.

Serve chilled and with lime wedges on the side to squeeze over the top if you're into that kinda thing.

See you tomorrow! XO

* Feel weird calling this a recipe... it's more like a tossed bowl of awesome combo.


  1. i am SO glad that summer is almost here with its warm weather, and DELICIOUS fruits and veggies! yay! that salad looks fabulous. thanks for sharing!

  2. That beer can Tofurky is on my summer to-do list fo' sho. And that fruit salad does look lovely. I never know what to do with pom seeds.

  3. Bianca - If you make the beer can tofurky - Please send me lots of pictures!

  4. Where do you find Pomegranates at this time of year? Isn't that an autumn seasonal fruit?

  5. We actually found ours at Whole Foods. They came from Florida.

  6. It's the best kind of takes 10 minutes to make and it's pretty to look at. Less time in the kitchen means more time in the sun.

  7. Okay so totally adding this to my 4th of July cookout menu. Great, simple and refreshing! Total perfection for summer :)
