We've been blessed with a gorgeous yellow watermelon from our CSA share several times now. First one went to my Dad's birthday celebration where it got rave reviews from all ages and provided some adorable photo ops with a baby who was having a ball feeding it to himself. Last week's melon was left for my daughter to share with some company she had while we were out of town for the weekend, however she ended up not using it. So when I picked up my share this week I knew I still had the one in my fridge and with there being little space for another one I chose the smallest one I could find and set out to make something with the older melon ASAP when I arrived home. This is what came of it:
Into your nice, large salad bowl place the following ingredients then toss to mix:
Half a lovely organic yellow watermelon, cubed (reserve rind for pickling if desired)
Two cups organic home-sprouted mung beans
Two organic carrots, shredded
One small organic onion, chopped
A handful of organic cilantro, chopped
Sea salt and ground pepper to taste (optional)
I added balsamic to this, however one of the folks in my house doesn't have a taste for vinegar lately so we dressed the salad individually once plated. I served it over a bed of organic spring mix greens.
What are you waiting for? Go cut that watermelon you have sitting in your fridge from this week's CSA share and enjoy!
