  1. That watermelon salsa sounds really interesting. I would love to give it a try.

      I have heard the same thing about watermelon. I also heard that it’s good to eat if you are anemic because it helps your body absorb iron, though I am not sure if that’s true or not.

  3. YUM! I have tried the salsa before or one like it, and it was so good! Those slushy drinks look pretty good too!

  4. Amy Desrosiers says:

    Watermelon salsa is one of those recipe that I must ad to my bucket list! It looks so delicious!

  5. I used to love watermelon when I lived in the south. I am not sure what the deal is but since moving to the north it just doesn’t taste the same to me. I love it in its raw form, but haven’t ever been a fan of watermelon based things.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I can’t say that I have tasted one from the north. Next time I travel there, I will have to try one to see the difference.

  6. I love watermelon when it’s perfectly ripe. The watermelon milkshake sounds amazing. I pinned it to try later.
