A friend on Instagram, uploaded a photo of watermelon rind pickles.
It sounded so easy that I had to try.
She didn't give measurements, so I ad-libbed...here's what I did...
rind of less than 1/8 of watermelon
1/2 tablespoon Hawaiian salt (coarse salt if you don't have Hawaiian salt)
Cut the green part off
Slice into 1/2 inch matchsticks
Sprinkle the salt
Massage and leave for a couple of hours
Rinse before eating
A lot of recipes online involve cooking the rind, but I like this version because there is no cooking involved.
Perfect for summer!
NOTES: After rinsing, this was still quite salty, so I would cut back the amount of salt to a teaspoon.
Also, I think leaving a little "red" makes it more photogenic.
This was super crunchy and tastes like cucumbers.
I'm making this again.
