What a great combination of flavours! Never would have thought to add these spices to watermelon. So glad we did. This is a must try, it's so different.

This Spicy Watermelon is very similar to the spicy watermelon cups I purchase at my local Flea Market. I enjoy having during the summer months. The salt & heat really bring out the sweetness of the watermelon. And this recipe saves me buckets of money, since my local flea Market sells their cups for $5 bucks a piece. Thanks for the recipe.

This was not liked by the adults or children. It wasn't awful, it was just weird. After an all-around sampling, I had to rinse everything off so the watermelon would get eaten. I'll stick to the occasional sprinkle of salt on my watermelon.
