Expert Tips

*To toast almonds, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350°F oven 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.

The pasta salad can be made ahead and refrigerated. Arrange watermelon wedges with the salad just before serving.

Use seedless watermelon for a carefree eating experience.
