Salted Watermelon Ice Cream {No Churn}

    It is starting to get steamy in West Virginia! My plants and I are drooping pretty good come 4 p.m., so I made myself some sweet and salty Watermelon Ice Cream to reward myself after watering the plants.
    This is a no-churn frozen dessert that is easy to make and requires no ice cream maker. 
    Do you like your watermelon salted? 
    Personally, I’m a watermelon purest. I like it cold, crisp, and juicy. My father-in-law adds salt to his and I’ve got a few friends who do as well. The salt is totally optional, but I actually liked it. It was a bit unexpected and added a little extra umami. I loved it!
    I hope that you are enjoying the beginning to your summer. I sure am! Stay COOL!
