The other night, my friend Susan had us over for dinner. One of the dishes she served was this wonderful watermelon salad. I had seen several recipes for this recently, but wasn't sure if I was buying the whole idea of watermelon being a key part of a salad - I'm always a little wary of mixing sweet and savory items. I was really impressed with this salad, though. Susan told me the recipe was from Publix, so today I looked it up and made it myself. It's so great and refreshing. I'm sure I'll be eating it more throughout the summer!
