  3. Cut slices downward 1-2" wide depending how large you want the sticks.
  4. Rotate the cutting board and cut slices downward and perpendicular to the other slices.
  5. Repeat with the other watermelon half (or save that portion for another meal)
  6. Serve on the cutting board, in a jar, or on a sliver platter - possibilities are endless.
