Watermelon Salad- Disney Parks Blog
And if you can’t get to Disney- no worries! You can still celebrate this month with a Disney-inspired watermelon treat originally posted by Disney Parks Blog!
- 4 pounds watermelon
- 1 cup thinly sliced ginger
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup rice vinegar
- 1 cup grenadine
- 1 cup water
1. Slice red fruit away from watermelon rind and skin. Scrub skin and scrape the white part of rind with a serrated spoon to remove most of red fruit.
2. Slice rind and skin into paper-thin strips with a mandoline. Set aside.
3. Stir together ginger, sugar, vinegar, grenadine, and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook 10 minutes to let ginger infuse liquid. Remove from heat and slightly cool.
4. Stir in watermelon rind and marinate at least 1 hour. Refrigerate in an airtight container. To serve, drain the rind and remove ginger slices.
