Watermelon salad? What's the big deal? How can you make a watermelon taste better? Well, come along for the ride, folks. Think cubes of chilled sweet watermelon, tossed with a dressing made with citrus & topped with watermelon icy slush, with a sprinkle of sea salt & citrus zest (and maybe add a splash of bourbon for the adults?) This fun salad recipe also makes a healthy dessert. Grokker Premium video in the Asian Cuisine with California Sensibilities collection by Chef Alex Ong of Betelnut Restaurant.

Servings: 4

Ingredients:
Salad:
Seedless watermelon- peeled, cubed ¾€ & half of it chilled

Garnish:
1 Zest of lime
1 Zest of orange
1 tsp Sea salt

Dressing:
2 cups Orange juice
1 Lime juice (squeeze the lime after you have zested it)

4. Blend it a little and then take some fresh mint and chop it up. Add the mint and blend it well. Pour out the dressing in a container.

5. Take the cube watermelon toss it together with 2 tablespoons of the dressing.

6. Place the watermelon ice on top and finish with the lime zest and a pinch of kosher salt on top.

7. If you want bourbon or dark rum on top it is up to you!
