Stephanie Simek: Hi! I am Stephanie Simek with the National Watermelon Promotion Board. I am going to show you how to make some creative watermelon recipes. First I'll show you how to pick up a great watermelon form the grocery store, then we'll go in to making easy watermelon veggies and cubes directly from the rind. From there, I'll move on to kid's recipes and we'll do our watermelon dippers and my favorite frosted watermelon cutouts. From there, we'll go on to our watermelon sandwiches and salads and then we'll go step by step on how to make a classic steak sandwich as well as watermelon salad that we call our favorite vegetable casserole. Before we begin, I'd like tell you little bit about myself. I am the Director of PR and Social Media for the National Watermelon Promotion Board. Watermelon is not just for picnics anymore; the promotion board showcases watermelon as a healthy, versatile and year round fruit.
So let's get started.
