The Perfect Summer Salad Tool!

71sfXL9uRCL._SL1500_There’s nothing better than watermelon slices on a hot summer day, don’t you think? ‘Tis the season to enjoy this healthy and delicious fruit, while the prices are great and it’s oh so sweet! Cutting watermelon slices can be an intimidating task for those who aren’t sure how to handle it. Thanks to MERCIER Kitchen, watermelon slicing is now a whole lot easier.

MERCIER is a kitchen product manufacturer that makes a number of products and sells exclusively on Amazon. The Watermelon Slicer Corer and Serving Tongs tool will slice and core your watermelon all the way to the watermelon 81LxFi+VIOL._SL1500_rind, giving you the perfect “no fuss” slice of fruit.

Step 1: Slice your watermelon in half

Step 2: Slice, pick up, and serve!

The set sells for $12.95 on Amazon and is made with 100% stainless steel and comes with a free melon baller as a bonus! Kitchen tools as i’m sure you can tell, excite me! I love making melon ball sangria in the summer (and also find melon balling to be somewhat therapeutic). This tool is easy to use, has a silicone grip handle, and is safe for children. It’s sleek design is BPA free and made with food grade materials, and will never rust, corrode, or lose it’s shine.

I love making Watermelon Caprese Salad in the summer because it’s a delicious way to add something sweet (besides balsamic) to this somewhat savory lunch or dinner side. Enjoy this summer salad with a crisp white wine or bottle of sparkling wine!

IMG_58391Watermelon Caprese Salad

1 Watermelon (I prefer seedless)

16-20 Mozzarella Cubes

10-15 Basil Leaves

1Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

Method: Using the MERCIER watermelon slicer and corer, slice and pick out your watermelon pieces. Cut them into smaller chunks and place in large bowl. Cube fresh mozzarella and mix with watermelon cubes. Chiffonade or chop basil to break up into smaller pieces and release aromatics into salad. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar, stir mixture together, and chill in the refrigerator for an hour or more. Serve chilled with a chilled bottle of wine!

Always remember, eat what you like and drink what you love… Please pair responsibly.
