As the final days of summer end for families and thoughts of buying school supplies replace vacation plans, there is still some time to treat yourself to summer's sweet treat. Growing up in rural Johnston County, we have fond memories of thumping a watermelon right in the field and picking the very best one, trying to carry it back to the house, and slicing it open right on the front porch....and of course, seeing who could spit seeds the farthest.
Today, there are so many more recipes using watermelons (and cocktails, too!), that show some sophistication and are simple to put together. So, grill out some hamburgers, and serve up a fresh Watermelon Caprese Salad....or just call the kids, give them a slice, and stand back!
