I wait all year for watermelon and then eat it with reckless abandon every chance I get. I love buying the small, seedless varieties, they are so easy to cut up and enjoy. I can't believe how sweet the ones I have already tasted are....so far a good crop!
Anyway, if you have never experienced watermelon with something a little salty and a little oniony, it's about time you do. It's by far my favorite way to eat watermelon. And it's totally addictive. You will enjoy it all summer and crave it all winter.
You must experience this to understand what I am talking about. You can thank me later!! Believe me when I tell you how surprising and wonderful the flavors are when they come together.
