Benefit-rich watermelons are a fruit that many people enjoy but don’t often know how to “spice up.” They’re not usually found in traditional fruit salads, and because they’re a seasonal fruit, just when you get the hang of eating them, they’re off the market.

But this Watermelon Salad is going to knock your socks off. It requires little more than a handful of ingredients and is an elegant starter to any meal.

Begin by heating coconut oil in a small pan over medium-low heat. Add in the rosemary sprigs and pan fry until the herb is crisp, about one minute. Remove the pan from heat and allow the rosemary to cool.

Separate the rosemary and oil, placing each in separate bowls and setting aside for now. In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt and Bee Free Honee until well combined, then set aside.

This honey-like substitute is made from apples, lemon juice and cane sugar and is a suitable alternative to honey for people who have allergies to it, can’t process raw honey or avoid animal products. If you don’t fall into any of those categories, you can use normal raw honey.

In a small bowl, add the salt, pepper, crushed red pepper flakes and poppy seeds.

Then grab four plates and evenly distribute the yogurt mixture, watermelon and fried rosemary. Add some extra flavor by drizzling the reserved rosemary oil and lemon juice over the four plates. Sprinkle the spice mixture onto your plate until you reach the desired taste and spiciness level.

This watermelon salad is just what you need to make any dinner feel more upscale. Serve it for company or enjoy it amongst the family. I know they’ll be impressed!
