I love old family recipe for Fried Watermelon... so I decided to try using the watermelon rind for other recipes... and came up with this.

As Zucchini, the watermelon rind just blends in and takes on the flavors in the sauce. No more wasting all of that watermelon rind! And guess what? It is good!
