EASY SIMPLE SUMMER BLUEBERRY WATERMELON SALAD

Begin by making a simple sugar using 1/4 cup sugar with 1/4 cup water.  Heat it in a saucepan on the stove.  Stir until the sugar has dissolved.  Dissolving the sugar will only take a couple of minutes.  When the sugar turns from cloudy to clear it is ready.  Allow the simple syrup to completely cool.  Next, cut a seedless watermelon in half.  Take a melon baller and scoop out the inside of half of a watermelon using the melon baller to make small balls.  Place the watermelon balls into a large bowl.  You should have three cups of watermelon.  Mix in two cups of fresh blueberries.  Use a lemon zester and zest one lemon into the same bowl.  Add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the simple sugar.  Finish this salad with 6 to 8 crushed mint leaves.  Stir well and refrigerate until cold.  Enjoy!
