This recipe is super easy to prepare and can be made poolside, at a campfire or at home. Before mealtime, go on an adventure with your kids to the grocery store to select the best watermelon out of the bunch and play a guessing game of how much it weighs! Though optional, we suggest chilling the watermelon in advance and slicing it just before eaten to help deliver the crunchiest texture.  We know that the thin fry shape brings back memories of savory french fries, and your kids will be pleasantly surprised by this new shape.  

The end result is  a delicious, sweet and savory treat that deserves a spot on your picnic table this summer!
