Whenever I look at watermelon all I can think of is the summer camp I went to when I was a kid. The highlight of the summer was our watermelon seed contest. Each group would have to gather as many seeds from eating watermelon as possible. When it came down to judging, if the head of camp thought you cheated, which happened a lot, usually by putting chunks of watermelon in your cup, he would dump the entire thing over your head. It was a huge mess and enough fun to keep a smile on your face the rest of the day.
Summer and watermelon are just those things that make sense together. Like the phrase two peas in a pod. This is what I think of when it is summer time. What’s summer without a little watermelon in your diet?!
This recipe is great because you can make a lot of it or a little depending on who you have to feed. I made this recipe for a serving for myself. If you want to make it as a large salad then you can triple or quadruple it.
