I love fresh fruit and watermelon is one of my favorites. This is a recipe for a savory watermelon and it can be made with or without alcohol. What a great treat to enjoy after a day in the sun or poolside.
1/2 seedless watermelon, cut in bite size pieces
2 limes, juiced*
2 generous pinches of kosher salt, or more to taste
4 tablespoons of tequila, optional
1/3 cup chopped cilantro, more for garnish
In a large bowl, add all ingredients. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours.
*I roll my citrus fruit on the counter with a firm hand and microwave for 15 seconds a piece to achieve maximum juice.
All watermelons do not grow the same size. The quantities in this recipe might need to be adjusted up or down depending on the size of the melon. I actually used a quarter slice when making this recipe. Enjoy!
