Here’s a delightful Egyptian Watermelon summer salad shared with What’s Cooking America by Chef Maha Basoom.  Maha specializes in Egyptian cooking and teaches cooking classes on Egyptian cuisine all over North America and Europe.  Not only it is full of healthy juices, but it’s super delicious, tasty, and inexpensive.  Most barbecues go hand in hand with the cool crunch of a big juicy watermelon.
