READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by SkinnyMinnie

This looked too good to pass up when I found it in Cooking Light magazine. I have not had the pleasure of trying it yet, but I will this summer! Serve over a bed of jasmine or basmati rice.

I bought a bunch of watermelons because they were on sale, so I went looking for recipes and this sounded perfect. It turned out even better than I thought. Thanks for sharing!
