What kind of watermelon is best for Watermelon fries with whipped feta dip

Use seedless watermelon. Seedless watermelon may still have small white seeds, but you just want to make sure it doesn’t have the big black seeds.  Also you don’t need a large quantity of watermelon- a few slices will work for several cocktails.

If you’re buying a watermelon, how do you know if it’s a good one?

  • Find the field spot, it should be a yellowish creamy color on the outside where the watermelon had been resting on the ground.
  • Dull looking watermelons are better; shiny melons are not yet ripe.
  • Knock on it with your knuckles; the surface should be hard/firm. A dull thud indicates the flesh inside is getting old
  • Get the heaviest one for its size; water is heavy and a lot of water in a watermelon is a positive indicator!
  • You want uniform shape – round or oval is fine…irregular edges might indicate an inconsistent water source
