I don’t know about you, but I’ve been loving the gigantic watermelons that have been all over the grocery stores lately! I buy one of these monsters each week and have enough watermelon to bring for lunch everyday and to snack on at night. Seasonal watermelon is so delicious and healthy. Instead of just eating it as a snack, I decided to make a Watermelon Salad. This watermelon salad is amazing and I’ll tell you something crazy… there’s cayenne pepper in this recipe! You only add a pinch of cayenne pepper, but it gives the watermelon such an amazing flavor. I can’t even describe what the cayenne pepper does to the salad, but trust me, you’ll love it. When you try this salad you will be just as obsessed with it as I am. Give it a try!
