How to Make Watermelon Slices
Watermelon is a delicious and refreshing summertime treat. It’s also incredibly easy to prepare, making it the perfect snack for any occasion. Whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue or just looking for a quick and healthy snack, watermelon slices are sure to please. Here’s how to make them.
Step 1: Choose Your Watermelon
When selecting your watermelon, look for one that is heavy for its size and has a dull, not shiny, rind. The underside should have a creamy yellow spot where it rested on the ground while growing. If it doesn’t have this spot, it may not be ripe yet.
Step 2: Cut the Watermelon
Once you’ve chosen your watermelon, cut off both ends so that it can sit flat on the cutting board. Then, cut the watermelon in half lengthwise. Finally, cut each half into slices about 1/2 inch thick.
Step 3: Serve and Enjoy!
Your watermelon slices are now ready to serve! You can enjoy them as-is or add some extra flavor with a sprinkle of salt or lime juice. They also make a great addition to salads or fruit platters. Enjoy!
