“When one has tasted watermelon he knows what the angels eat.” ― Mark Twain
We made this sweet n’ spicy delight using the Jalapeño-Lime Watermelon Salad recipe from Cookin’ Crunk, by Bianca Phillips, page 48. I can’t think of anything more refreshing than watermelon on a hot day, and when you add jalapeños, fresh basil, and lime to the mix look out because you won’t be able to get enough! That’s okay though, because all of that fresh fruit is good for you, and watermelon is 91% water anyway and it’s a great source of vitamin C.
Watermelon Facts: The first recorded watermelon harvest occurred nearly 5,000 years ago in Egypt and is depicted in Egyptian hieroglyphics on walls of their ancient buildings. Watermelons were often placed in the burial tombs of kings to nourish them in the afterlife.
