Watermelon Salad with Mint and Queso Fresco

Watermelon might be the ultimate summer fruit. Every once in a while it's nice to up the ante just a little, to add a bit of panache to your fruit.

Super easy, tasty, fresh sides and salads for picnics, summer barbecues or anytime. The fact is there isn't much to say other than that. The honey adds just a touch of sweetness while the salty cheese makes the taste buds beg for more. The cooling fresh mint is just damn refreshing.

Just three little ingredients give this simple fruit elegance and happiness. And that resembles Fat and Happy more than anything else.

Fat and Happy Tips and Techniques:  I'm not adding measurements or amounts to the ingredients below, just add what feels right. Use the images as your guide.

Mint, Watermelon and Queso Fresco Salad

Queso fresco

Dice the watermelon into large, but bite-able chunks. Finely chop the mint and sprinkle over the watermelon. Crumble the queso fresco over the melon and then drizzle with a bit of honey.

Serve at room temperature for the best flavor.


  1. Oh man does that look good. I just so happen to have all the ingredients at home. I can't wait to get home and make this salad, though I will add some spicy pepper slices from my garden.

  2. Love the pepper idea, I had contemplated adding in minced jalapeno. Also forgot to mention a pinch a sea salt for a little boost!

  3. This salad looks so refreshing, the watermelon and mint combo sounds scrumptious!
