How to cut a watermelon
Start by cutting off the ends of your watermelon so you can sit it up right.
Starting from the top down, start cutting the rind off around the entire watermelon.
Continue until the entire watermelon is free of the rind.
Then cut the watermelon in half, which makes it more manageable to cut into slices.
You can then quarter the watermelon and cut in the desired size slices. If a little white is left on, you can use a pairing knife to trim this off.
Watermelon is amazing just like this but added to a summer salad it becomes an amazing texture to a summer side dish.
Happy summer and hope you enjoy your next watermelon. Do you prefer it rind on or off?
