Alisha Duncan in Blanchard, Oklahoma relies on this refreshing blend of watermelon, onion and a splash of citrus to “do her proud“ at summer picnics and potlucks. “I like to prepare it a day ahead so the flavors have a chance to blend and marinate,“ says Alisha, who uses the rind as a colorful serving bowl. (Any bottled citrus vinaigrette can be substituted to cut preparation time.)

DELICIOUS!!!! I made this for my familys Easter potluck BBQ, and it was a TOTAL HIT!!! Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. I didnt use exact measurments, just one seedless melon, a red onion, a red bell pepper and like 4 scallions. My mom raved about it so much that 3 people for her work asked for the recipe! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING!!! will deff be making again!
