Watermelon Citrus Salad

Watermelon Citrus Salad

I went to our local Farmer's Market last weekend and purchased some wonderful produce.  One of my favorite booths had watermelons, and I could not resist. Let me tell you one thing I've learned about watermelons, they are so deceiving. There is a lot more melon in there than you think...I used 5 tupperware containers when I sliced it up! Needless to say, I had to call in the troops, so we had some family over for a "Summer Supper". I served lots of fresh dishes but this was one of my husbands favorites from the night. Enjoy!
