Watermelon Squares in Campari

1

You can serve watermelon the traditional way, but when cut in squares, not only are the pieces the perfect size for dipping into Campari, but the presentation is also amazing.

  • Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • One 5- to 6-pound watermelon, halved lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup Campari (optional)

Directions

  1. Using a very sharp knife, slice the rind from the bottom of each watermelon half. The halves will now lay flat on a cutting board.

  2. Working from top to bottom, trim the rind from the watermelon flesh in 4 cuts, creating 2 large squares. Cut each square in half to make 4 smaller squares. Cut the squares vertically into thirds. Rotate counterclockwise and repeat the cut. Rotate once more counterclockwise and cut into thirds again.

  3. Place on dessert plates and serve each with 2 tablespoons of Campari, if desired.

    campari is a veeeery bitter liquor. Made from orange peels and herbs. This sounds so interesting! I also love watermelon with ground sea salt, fennel seeds and lime juice (www.splendidtable.org). Yum!
