I started eating watermelon a few years ago. There was something about the texture that totally threw me for a loop. I love all fruit so when I used to go to picnics and there would be huge plates of watermelon all cut up and juicy, I would stand far back. Well, not anymore. I have joined the other watermelon lovers out there and can say I love the pinkish juicy fruit! Watermelon is so refreshing in the summer and totally hits your sweet tooth when you need something “healthy sweet.” Joe is the one who manhandles the watermelon for me because even though our knife set is pretty top notch – wedding gift – I still feel like I’m going to lose a finger when trying to split the big bump in half. I let him do the cutting and for me, I do the eating! Read on for the makings… PS – I won’t call this a recipe because I didn’t measure out the ingredients, I just used 4 simple ingredients.

- Cottage cheese
- Fresh Mint, minced
- Place watermelon cubes on plate (make sure they are flat).
