Light, tangy and refreshing; this gorgeous Mojito Mint Melon salad is just the thing to bring to your next gathering!

A medley of melons are lightly dressed in a lime mint dressing, perfectly enhancing the sweetness of the melon (tequila optional!)

The base of the dressing recipe calls for a simple syrup, commonly used in dessert and cocktail recipes. To cut down on the amount of sugar in the recipe, I cut back on the simple syrup and added liquid stevia to taste.

Monk fruit could also be substituted as a sweetener; using these types of sweeteners with a little real sugar gives you the best taste outcome.

Curious about the best types of sweeteners to use? A whole lesson on sugars and sweeteners is included in the Flourish 180 Wellness  class, currently on summer sale!

I hope you enjoy this crisp, cool, summer salad!
