When life gives you watermelon…

Host a watermelon eating contest! What better way to celebrate National Watermelon Day than with a feast?

As the kiddos chowed down on their watermelon hunks, I made something for the parents to munch on too. Try my recipe for a delicious and refreshing watermelon salad. Super easy to make and it’s pretty on a plate!
