There are few things that bring me more joy than cutting into a perfect watermelon in the peak of summer. I eat it plain, blend it into juice, shake it up into a cocktail but my favorite way to enjoy it is in a simple summer salad. All you need is some cubed watermelon, fresh lime, a few crunchy cucumbers, mint and some chili lime seasoning and you have a refreshing, crowd-pleasing summer side. Want to brush up on your watermelon carving skills? It's easier than you may think! Check out our tutorial HERE. You can use this same method no matter the melon you're working with. If it's a seeded melon like honeydew or cantaloupe, once you remove the rind, cut it in half and scoop and discard the seeds.
