Mellow Melon

I'm of the belief that watermelon is perfectly delicious just as it is, but if you're looking to jazz it up a little, try out this recipe. It may seem like a lot of flavors going on, but it comes together really nicely. This recipe also raises an age-old question of personal taste: do you salt your watermelon?

1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons grey salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 (5-pound) watermelon

In a large bowl, add all ingredients together except for watermelon.
Remove the rind from the watermelon and cut into 1/2-inch slices and remove seeds. Cut the watermelon into cutes and place in individual bowls. Drizzle with the pineapple mixture and serve.


  1. I'm not sure I'm familiar with grey salt. But we, down in the south, do indeed salt our watermelon :)

  2. Ameretto is lovely on watermelon and you wouldn't think it would be.
