Your Fresh Watermelon Salad Will Be Better With A Splash Of Rum
Watermelon salad is a great way to enjoy fresh melon, but it can be bland if it's just fruit in a bowl. For a dish that's more sweet, aromatic, and complex, add a splash of rum.
Freshly-cut watermelon "dressed" with rum is a great salad by itself, but you can add herbs, other fruits like berries, or feta and mint for a variation on the classic salad.
Martha Stewart recommends using 2 tablespoons of light rum per 10 cups of watermelon. Light rum has a softer taste that is practically made for a refreshing summertime fruit salad.
