Spicy water melon

One of my farmer friends gifted this to me today who visited us from his Salalah farm. Information on Salalah is here, here, and here - a must-visit location in the Middle-East. This water melon has a slightly red to yellow flesh, guess it is a ice-box kind. Water melon is an excellent summer fruit as it quenches thirst pretty fast. We love to eat water melon just raw making it a little spicy as mentioned below. They taste great. It makes few cool and refreshing drinks as well. On account of its high water content, the water melon is a good diuretic in cases of fever.

Spicy water melon recipe

Watermelon - deseeded and cubed
Black pepper powder - to taste
Salt - to taste

Method: Sprinkle black pepper powder and salt on the cubed watermelon and serve :-) It is that easy. Surprise your family members or guests with this real treat. Enjoy!

Also you may want to try freezing strained watermelon juice in ice cube trays to add to lemonades and fruit punches for a flavorful addition to your drinks.

Watermelon with black pepper and salt? I've never tasted it that way and I'd love to. Thanks for the recipe!

Paz (who wishes she had a friend to gift her a watermelon!)

I love watermelon. I've been known to sit down with a watermelon half and call it lunch. I've always eaten it with salt, I'll have to try it with pepper.

Wow - water melon as a lunch, you should be a real fan of it. Never dared to try fruits-only lunch. Will try out some time.
