Intro: How to Cut (and Remove the Seeds From) a Watermelon for a Salad
Forty one year’s ago, the first summer after my marriage to my first Husband, I was informed that I was to “ALWAYS” have a watermelon in the fridge. I put a little tally sheet on the fridge to keep track of how many I bought that summer. The grand total was “31” watermelons. Many years later, a friend of mine showed me how she cut up a watermelon. I needed a way to cut up the melon easily and quickly, so that my children would eat the melon before it went bad (their Dad had died some years before or that would not have been a problem). Now when I get a watermelon, I just cut it up, put the pieces in a bowl, and everyone just eats the watermelon as they want. Before I know it, it’s gone. So here is how I cut up a Watermelon for an easy fresh salad.
