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.
