Watermelon Hors d'ouvreThe flowerflinging.com ‘mantra’ is “flowers, floral design, flower shows, fun and even food”.  This watermelon recipe generated a lot of comment.  This summer hors d’ouvre is easy: Cube the watermelon, add chopped coriander, lime juice  along with the grated peel, and rum.  Let it sit for an hour and serve with toothpicks. It’s almost the season so try it this year.
