This year I have decided to celebrate my birthday with some of my friends. I don’t do this every year and this time we had definitely something to show off 🙂 We have prepared the most authentic Texas BBQ party with recipes that we have found in this amazing book „Texas BBQ“ from Jonas Cramby. I would recommend that book for everybody who wants to start with smoking. The book contains some great meat recipes as well as recipes for BBQ sauces and side dishes. Todays post is about one of the side dishes that is very refreshing, goes well as a starter and as a side to any smoked or grilled meat – My favorite Watermelon Salad! I decided to start BBQ tab with this dish because that was the one which was the first gone from the party. My guests loved it! That was my first time serving that dish without trying it before what I normally don’t do. I try to feed my guests with dishes that I have already tested. This looked just so good that i couldn’t don’t include this salad in my menu. Well, that worked just fine!
