How to Cut a Watermelon

It's summer and it's hot out, which means it's time to eat watermelon. Lots and lots and lots of watermelon. This tutorial shows you how to cut a watermelon, or any melon, into perfect little cubes.

1. To start cut your watermelon in half from core to end, and then in half again to make four quarters.
2. On one side slice the watermelon 3-4 times, each an inch apart, holding the blade parallel to the side you're not cutting. Here, a photo explains that better:
3. Repeat this step on the other side:
4. Cut across the top, each cut an inch apart, perpendicular to the slices you just made:
5. Remove all the loose cubes you just created:
6. Cut off all the remaining cubes by slicing along the rind on both sides of the watermelon:
7. Repeat with the other three quarters

And there you have it: perfect little cubes of watermelon. Toss these guys with some feta and mint, throw a burger on the grill, and you're ready to enjoy your back yard.
