Watermelon Mint Salad

The weather has started to warm up a little here. I see hot season fruits slowly appearing in stores here.We bought a big watermelon about 3-4 days back and have been having it everyday since.
I was tired of eating just watermelon (lightly sprinkled with salt) everyday, so I made this salad today. I got the idea for this salad when my husband talked about lunch options at his cafeteria. He said they have a side salad option, which consists of pineapple cubes, chopped jalapeno, and cilantro. He says, even though it sounds very simple it tastes very good because of the combination of different flavors.

In this salad, I added some lemon juice to overcome very sweet of watermelon.

2 Cups Watermelon, Cut into bite size pieces,
1/4 Jalapeno Pepper, Finely Chopped
2 Teaspoon Lemon Juice,
Salt to Taste,(A pinch is good enough)
4-5 Mint Leaves, Chopped Coarsely

Combine the watermelon, jalapeno and mint leaves in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Just before serving, add lemon juice and salt. Mix well. Serve Chilled.
