Tropical salad

I made this tropical salad on a weekend...... I just love these summery fruits .......... watermelon, musk melon and so thought of making something more exciting out of them!
Here's how I went about it:
Watermelon, Musk Melon, Papaya, Pineapple (fresh or canned), Grapes, Black Grapes, Cucumber (optional)
For Dressing
Mint leaves, Lemon, Black salt, Chaat Masala
For garnishing: Spring Onions
Cut Watermelon, Musk Melon, Papaya, Pineapple and Cucumber into big square pieces or scoop out Watermelon and Musk Melon into balls with the help of
melon-baller. Cut grapes in 2 halves.
Crush mint leaves cosrsely in mixer.
Mix all the fruits together and add crushed mint leaves. Add 1 tbsp lime juice and black salt and chaat masala as per taste.
Your fresh and colorful tropical salad is ready.
You may serve the salad in a bowl or make a basket form the remaining scooped-out watermelon.
The other side of the melon baller can be used to cut out musk melon for decoration.
You may also make flowers out of spring onions and use them for garnishing.
