5 Unique Ways to Eat Watermelon

It’s Florida Watermelon season! I look forward to this time of year because watermelon is one of my favorite fruit to eat. Here are 5 ‘unique’ ways to eat Florida watermelon… I’ve personally tried 4 out of 5 of these ways and they are yummy!
1. Put some salt on it. No seriously, salt. There’s something about the sweet and salty mix that is a-mazing! On our Facebook page we asked if people liked salt on their watermelon and got quite a few responses. 54 people responded and I kid you not, it was dead even, 50% said yes and 50% said no (and very emphatically, I might add). One person even said they put lemon on their watermelon, sounds interesting.
2. Take the rind and pickle it (thanks Chef Justin & Chef Josh). I don’t have Chef Justin’s recipe, but I found one that sounded good. Check it out here. I’ve had some that Justin made before and they were pretty good.
3. Eat it on a sandwich. Here’s a great example: Chef Justin made an Open Face Watermelon Sandwich for our new brochures and they were yum! Who knew watermelon was good on bread?
5. Have a watermelon drink! Who knew there were so many recipes for watermelon drinks out there, but there are. A simple search of ‘watermelon drink’ brought tons of results. I found this one and this one to be the most tasty sounding.
