This lime watermelon sounds simple, but it’s going to change your LIFE! (Or, at least your summer.)
Arizona makes AMAZING, glorious, juicy watermelon, and it’s basically all I want to eat in the summer.
I have 4 watermelons on my counter as I type this. We toss it into Watermelon Popsicles, blend up this Watermelon electrolyte drink, mix it into Watermelon Berry Fruit Salad, use it to make 4th of July fruit skewers, freeze it to make Watermelon Slushies, and keep a bowl of cut watermelon in our fridge practically all summer long. I have zero qualms about enjoying juicy, ripe watermelon exactly as it is.
AND it’s also REALLY fun to mix things up! Enter: Lime Watermelon! It’s just as easy as it sounds…
I can take absolutely NO credit for this method (more a method than a recipe). It comes to me from my sisters Kate and Jordan, who got it from my talented/beautiful/always put together cousin Melissa.
It’s a holiday, and I know that watermelon season is just at it’s tail end, but in case you have any more cookouts to attend, add the zest and juice of a lime (or two!) to your next watermelon. Then, prepare to have your mind blown.
Happy day off, and happy party in your mouth!Print
