Matt Neal calls this supremely simple fruit salad the ultimate refresher on a hot day. For a grown-up version, he adds splashes of rum. "It's even more satisfying, then," he jokes.

  1. 8 cups seedless watermelon chunks (1 inch), from a 6-pound melon
  2. 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  3. Pinch of cayenne pepper
  4. 1/2 cup mint leaves, torn
  5. Salt
  1. In a large bowl, toss the watermelon with the lime juice and cayenne. Fold in the mint leaves, season with salt and serve.
Make Ahead The watermelon salad can be refrigerated overnight. Fold in the torn mint leaves just before serving.
