Chase away the mealtime blues

While summer, and Fourth of July in particular, is a time for cookouts, picnics, hot dogs, hamburgers, and watermelon, there are ways to present the typical summer fare with a twist. One of my favorite summertime treats is watermelon and, thanks to Boma at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, I have a new way to tempt my palate with this produce. So, while you’re thinking about what to do with those leftovers, why not give the Watermelon Rind Salad a try!


2 lbs. Watermelon Rind and Skin (sliced thin)
1 cup Ginger (sliced thin)
1 cup Rice Vinegar
1 cup Grenadine
1 cup Water
1 cup Sugar


In a small pot heat all ingredients, except the watermelon, until the sugar melts. Remove from heat and let cool.

Add watermelon rind and let marinate for at least 1 hour.
