Watermelon Salad

Watermelon and mint are an amazing flavor duo together in so many applications. Putting them together in a salad is so refreshing, and with a squeeze of lime on top, you’ll have a gorgeous salad all summer long.

Pickled Watermelon Rind

When you imagine a watermelon, it’s not assumed you’ll be eating the rind. But, by pickling it, you can! This classic southern dish can be used like any other pickled condiment, even put into chicken or tuna salad. The process is similar to pickling other vegetables, including water, sugar, salt, and various pickling spices, but the boiling times and steps can vary from recipe to recipe.

Watermelon With Salt

Salt is not the first thing of when you think of fruit, especially not watermelon, but it is a fabulous way to vamp up plain slices. Adding salt will actually bring out the sweetness of the fruit making it even more delicious.
