I’ve been wanting to make a watermelon salad for a while, but I’m not much of a melon fan, so I don’t tend to buy it. Since Keenan asked to have watermelon as part of his birthday party menu last Saturday, we had quite a bit left over, thus perfect for making a salad. I was a little hesitant on how it was going to turn out, but to my surprise, it was delicious and so refreshing for a warm Summer evening! I served it along side my Turkey Taco Pie and Keenan and my husband loved it!
