Watermelon Salad with Lemon dressing

 Watermelon with its bright pink colour flesh will be seen around summer in India. As the fruit has high water content and is a thirst quencher in the hot temperature.

 It is also said that taking watermelon reduces high blood pressure. For this month's Sshhhh secretly cooking challenge , I was paired with Veena Krishnakumar.The ingredients which veena krishnakumar gave were watermelon and Mint.

Requirements :
 1 bowl of scooped Watermelon
 Quarter cup of Pomegranate

Method :
Chop half onion finely and remaining into slices.
Squeeze juice out of Lemon.
In a bowl , add the watermelon balls , pomegranate and chopped onion , toss well.
In the serving bowl , arrange the sliced onion around the edges. Place the mixed salad in the centre .

Chill in the refrigerator till serving.
In a shaker bottle add the lemon juice , salt , pepper powder , sesame oil , Chopped Mint leaves and shake well.
Pour the salad dressing just before serving.
Place the mint sprig on top and serve.
