One Shabbos morning, as I was cutting watermelon for dessert, I fell in love with the idea of cutting up a watermelon into matchsticks, tossing it with a few other super-fresh ingredients, and creating summer on a plate. After developing what I thought was an amazing recipe, I decided to run it by a few friends to see what they thought, and let’s just say they were less than into it. In the end, I decided to leave the recipe as is, and let Renee Muller be the judge. She was obsessed. She forbade me from changing it, profusely thanking me for enabling her to have lunch that day! So here you have it, the recipe that deserves a try!
