Watermelon and mint always taste best together, but are you aware that there is more good reason to combine them? Watermelon is an excellent source of iron, while mint has not just iron but vitamin C too. Iron and vitamin C work best as a team as the latter is needed for iron to work best. So, now, always remember to throw in a few sprigs of mint every time you use watermelon in a salad or juice! The Watermelon and Mint Salad is a winner in terms of taste and good looks, as the olives and mint leaves stand out against the pinkish red background of watermelons. Serve this refreshing salad fresh or chilled.

The lemony honey dressing goes very well with the watermelon...the olives and mint add a great contrasting flavours to it. My kid finished a bowlful of this salad in no time... do try it!!
