Watermelon Sandwich with Mint Pesto


I was craving something refreshing to eat for dinner, but wanted something that didn’t require much work at all. I love the play of sweet and savory, so I figured I would use watermelon as the main part of my meal. Since mint and watermelon go so well together, I decided to make a mint pesto to go along with it. It’s an instantly addicting combo!

Blend together all the ingredients into a pesto sauce and spread it on each slice of watermelon and enjoy! I used nutritional yeast in the pesto, so this is vegan.
