Melon Berry Mint Salad

Melon Berry Mint Salad

Summer salads should be three things: easy, delicious, and refreshing! This dish is all of that (and more)! This Melon Berry Mint Salad is the perfect side to a heartier entree (so it's a great addition to any traditional BBQ spread). The lightness of the mint and sweetness of the berries are a perfect compliment to each other on a warm day! 

In my house, we love dessert. So I often serve this with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream! Taste it once and you'll understand why this is a family favorite for us! Enjoy!
