Watermelon is rarely thought of in the context of savory dishes, since it is usually eaten unadorned as a snack or light dessert. However, when watermelon is paired with fresh herbs, nori, and the bite of olive oil and chiles, it is transformed as a wonderfully savory-sweet salad ingredient. This recipe makes quite a bit of salad, as even the smallest watermelon yields quite a lot. Don’t worry about having too much, however— it’ll go fast.
