The way you play the game is by picking a letter of the alphabet and making a dish that begins with the letter you chose. I picked the letter "W". I am going to make a Watermelon Salad for the picnic. A picnic isn't a picnic with out some watermelon during the summer.
I love this salad. The taste is so summery and refreshing and the mint adds an extra coolness to the salad.
What I sometimes do when I am taking this salad to a real picnic - is assemble the salad there. It gets soggy if it sits around for hours.
