I’ve been trying to branch out with how I use watermelon. Summertime means killer deals on watermelon. I love eating it by the slice, but I want to make sure I show my family that watermelon has so much more to offer. I’m sure you remember my cilantro-lime grilled watermelon. Deliciousness. This salad is the same. A little wild, but totally delicious. It utilizes all those fresh summer favorites and yields a light, flavorful, and somewhat adventurous watermelon salad that most people will find quite refreshing. It’s a perfect summer side dish for those wanting to branch out. Go ahead, see what watermelon has to offer!
