WATERMELON PEEL SALAD
Salads
Contributed by:
Ingredients:
  • Two cups watermelon peel
  • 1 tsp salt
Cut out the white portion of the watermelon peel and cut into 2-by-1/2-inch strips. In a bowl, combine the strips of watermelon peel with salt. Mix by hand for 5 minutes. Rinse peel under cold water to remove salt; place on paper towels to dry.

DRESSING
0.7 oz. (about 4 tsp.) garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. sugar, to taste
1/4 tsp., salt to taste
2 TBS sesame oil
3 tsp. vinegar
In a bowl, combine all ingredients; mix with a whisk. Add watermelon peel and toss until evenly combined. Marinate for 1 hour and serve.
This dish clears summer heat and stomach heat, generates body fluid and relieves thirst. Pregnant or nursing women should not consume watermelon rind.
