Watermelon Salad with Radish and Sage

Watermelons in great variety are one of the most refreshing fruits. Serve them well chilled, in combination with other fruits and vegetables, for example – radishes. And why not? Use other herbs if you like – fresh dill, cilantro. Everyone seems to have different tastes about the proper seasoning.

    We've been eating a lot of daikon radish this time of the year, but never had it with the watermelon. The taste and flavor of this two ingredients marry well together, I can imagine it with my taste buds. The only thing left is to find watermelon! Beautiful photos! 🙂
