Tea and Poetry Tea Party: Watermelon Fruit Salad

Ode to the Watermelon
Pablo Neruda from Neruda's Garden, an Anthology of Odes
Thirsty, we anticipate
a mine or mountain
of ambrosia,
but between teeth and desire,
you change into
simple, fresh light
melting into a spring,
touching us with song.

Plain fruit salad is delicious but for a tea party, it is nice to add something extra. This Watermelon Fruit Salad Dressing does just that.

For the salad:
fruit of your choice, cut into bite-size pieces
watermelon, cut into chunks

For the dressing:
1 cup cubed seeded watermelon
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon raspberry vinegar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Refrigerate for at least an hour. Stir before using.
