Watermelon with honey - easy fruit dessert recipe

Yes we met again. This time with more foodies. We had a great time. It was nice to meet so many like minded people. We had the kitchen connect event organised by lakshmi. Each of us left with a secret ingredient. My ingredient was from Sheetal and she gave me "khus khus" or poppy seeds. I will be posting my recipe soon. Vani also presented a beautiful handmade doll. I will put up all the pictures in my post with the "kitchen connect" recipe. You can see the pictures in Priyanka's blog.
Yesterday, we had melon salad for breakfast. I got the recipe from a book of wholefood cooking by Margaret fulton. It was simply wonderful and can be had anytime either as breakfast or dessert. Here's the recipe.
honey watermelonIngredients-
Watermelon - yellow or red - 1/2
Clear honey- 2 tbspn
Lemon juice- 1tbspn
Almond flakes roasted- 1/4 cup
Sherry- 2tbspn(in the original recipe)- I looked for a substitute for sherry and I found pineapple or orange juice or vanilla extract could be used. I just added a few drops of vanilla essence.

Scoop the flesh out of watermelon discarding the seeds and cut into cubes. Mix together the honey ,lemon juice and the sherry/ juice . Then fold in the melon.Chill for 1 hour. Spoon into glasses and sprinkle with the almond to serve.
