Watermelon sprinkled with a little sea salt is one of my favourite summery flavour combinations — and I thought I was super fancy when I paired it with feta – but this watermelon “pokeacute” from Bon Appetit takes the sweet + savoury factor to a whole new place.
Here’s a quick summer tip to keep in mind. Instead of cutting your watermelon in the usual wedges, turn it around and cut it like a checkerboard against a flat plate – then serve it just like that. This video shows how it’s done.
Watermelons come in all shapes and sizes, so knowing how much you need for a barbecue or picnic can be tricky. This simple rule of thumb will make sure you get enough for everyone.
