  2. Cover and Chill: Cover and chill no more than 1 hour before serving (watermelon salad is best served immediately.)


Watermelon salad will produce excess liquid if it sits too long; it’s best served right away. If you must chill for awhile before serving, be sure to lightly toss again before serving.
