Place sugar, salt, ginger, and vinegar in microwave-safe measuring cup, and process on high until mixture is bubbly and sugar is dissolved. Pour through a strainer and let cool slightly.

Place watermelon and mint in a serving bowl and drizzle with the ginger syrup. Toss together. Refrigerate for 20 minutes to blend flavors. Sprinkle with pepper, and garnish with a mint sprig.

Serves 4 as a side salad.
