Watermelon salad is the most popular street food in India during summer. U can find people selling this salad in carts outside the schools & parks all over India. Its a very simple recipe yet I wanted to blog it. In Tamil nadu, this salad is usually served in a disposable bowl with a tooth pick. In Bangalore, I have seen some vendors serving in a small banana leaf in a more authentic way. Its a very simple but very tasty recipe with two toppings. One with salt and pepper and the other one with Chaat masala.

Recently I tasted this salad in a marriage banquet. Its taste and the simplicity of this recipe tempted me to blog it. U can make this salad for parties and get together too. Its too easy to make and the best body coolant for summer. As I mentioned in my watermelon juice post, it is always good to consume a fruit as it is without losing its fiber. So lets have this easy, Indian style watermelon salad recipe to beat this summer heat!. U can also add few pieces of cucumber to make it colorful & healthy. Sure, U will feel energetic and refreshing in this hot season.
