Watermelon and Strawberry Salad

I love to make watermelon salads during the summer and here is a new one that I can’t wait to try!

Watermelon and strawberry salad with ginger syrup
Serves 4

1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 2inch peeled piece of fresh ginger
1/4 watermelon, in cubes
3 cups strawberries, hulled and halved
fresh mint

Start with the syrup.
Bring sugar, water and ginger to a boil in a small saucepan.
Let it simmer for 5 minutes, cool.
Discard the ginger.
Place watermelon, strawberries and fresh mint in a large bowl and ad the syrup, mix well, cool and serve.
