You know it's a slow content day when I have to post a blurry picture of watermelon chunks.
But I do LOVE me some watermelon in the summertime. This has been a standard midday (or morning, or evening) snack for us. We go through watermelon like it's going out of style. There's not much space to store a watermelon for long in the truck - my fridge isn't that big and you can't have it rolling around in the sleeper as you careen off exit ramps. OK, maybe careen isn't exactly the word I was looking for...
What I'm trying to say is that we eat this quickly. We usually buy a watermelon a week, in addition to bananas, strawberries, raspberries, cherries (regular and my favorite, Rainier), apples, peaches. The trick is buying just the right amount - if we buy too little, we're jonesin' for a fix, if we buy too much, we wind up throwing away rotten fruit.
And since the tomato is technically a fruit, I should let you in on my mother's simple but fantastic Tomato Salad.
You can get the recipe HERE.
