NBR: interesting things to do with watermelon??

So at the Farmers market yesterday, my 4 year old "accidently" broke a huge watermelon and I obviously had to pay for it (thankfully, it was only 2 bucks).

But now, I have like 7 pounds of cut watermelon and have no idea what to do with it...DD is eating it, but I know it will go bad quicker than she and I can eat it, and the only recipies I find online are like summer salad kinda things - I was just seeing if there were more interesting things to do with it so it doesnt go to waste...

Any ideas??

    Yummo!  I love watermelon, and usually just sit there with a fork and eat it.... now that I am pregnant, I can eat a whole watermelon in a seating... OINK!  But this salad is excellent!   And before anyone freaks about the feta.... as long as its pasteurized, its safe to eat!

    Just got the new cooking light yest and they had a recipe for a watermelon, mint smoothie that sounded pretty good (a little greek yogurt in it).

    I also like to make watermelon lemonade and watermelon granita- yummy!

    One of my favorites is to dehydrate it - make your own fruit leather.  

    Sprinkle a pinch of salt on it and it comes out even sweeter than when it went in the dehydrator (or warm oven if you don't have a dehydrator).    Put the oven on at 250 degrees (f) and place the sliced, rindless melon on a screen covered rack.  If you have a convection oven, turn that on and close the door.  Check every 2-4 hours.  If you don't have a convection oven, leave the oven door cracked a little and check every other hour until done.   It keeps 3-4 weeks in a ziptop bag in the fridge or up to 6 months in the freezer.

     My son also enjoys his grilled with a pinch of salt and black pepper.
