  • 1 watermelon


  • Cut your watermelon in half lengthwise.
  • Then, cut each half in half to make 4 quarters of watermelon.
  • Take one of the quarters and make cuts from the top part of the melon all the way down to the rind.
  • Make 1 inch slices from one side of the melon to the other side.
  • Take your knife and slice 1 inch strips down the length of the melon. (You are essentially making a crosshatch pattern on each quarter of the watermelon.)
  • After the cuts are made, start from one edge of the melon and cut along the rind. The cubes should fall out of the rind really easily!
