  • ¼ watermelon, flesh removed

Carefully peel the watermelon skin off the white part of the rind. Chop the white rind, add to the liquid and leave to pickle for 1 hour.

Cook's note: One of our favourite ways to use watermelon rind. The rind quickly takes on the flavour of the dressing and makes for a mouthwatering, crunchy pickle.
