Tips for this Summer Salad
- You do not have to use a melon baller for this recipe - you could just chop up the watermelon, but there's something fun about a variety of shapes in a salad. You can use a melon baller or a rounded teaspoon to make melon balls. If you don't have a melon baller and would like to get one, I recommend this OXO Good Grips Melon Baller.
- I also used my favorite mixing bowls - these OXO Good Grips ones and my favorite “rubber scraper”, this silicone spatula - I use it for everything.
- This salad will keep in the fridge for two days.
