if it were up to me, watermelon would be the only melon.
honeydew and cantaloupe. psh. you good for nothing, oversized chunks. ruining my fruit salad eating moments. you bring shame to the melon family.
but dearest watermelon, you are everything a melon should be.
make this after you've eaten enough watermelon to become a human water bottle and can feel the water sloshing around in your stomach. and yet you still have a ton of watermelon left.
sesame. soy. ginger. cilantro. toasty sunflower seeds. put it on watermelon. yum. i want to eat this outside with salmon burgers. come join?
