Watermelon Salad with Mint and Queso Fresco

Watermelon, even though it's one of the sweeter fruits out there, works incredibly well in savory applications. In this light and refreshing salad, it's partnered with a host of savory ingredients: mint, parsley, corn, queso fresco, onions, vinegar, and a couple of twists of fresh cracked black pepper. It's bright and summery and is a perfect complement to any backyard barbecue.
