This is one of those things that kids will look at and be afraid of, adults may be a bit weary, but anyone who is brave enough to try it will immediately be raving and praising you on your genius.
It’s like goat cheese. Some people try it and adore it, eating it often. Others are too afraid to try it and just assume they’ll hate it, but they’re missing out on the creamy delicious goodness. You’ve just gotta try it.
Watermelon Onion Salad is both sweet and bitter, a perfect side dish for your next gathering.
Easy to make, good for you, and great for barbecues!
Most of this recipe is made with things you’ll probably have anyway. It’s summer, you probably have a watermelon you bought because they’re on sale and c’mon, you’ve gotta have a watermelon for the Fourth of July. Well, take half of it (because you don’t need the whole one anyway, it’s too big) and use it in this recipe. Now, you’re not only the person who brought watermelon, but the person who made a delicious salad!
