      I knew I would love this-anything w/ lime and you can't go wrong w/ watermelon-DELICIOUS-and very refreshing-especially after a spicy meal!!! Thank you, dale, for a great recipe! Made for the Think Pink Tag Game In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, October 2008.

      Not only extremely delicious, but easy to put together. I wanted to try the recipe using Splenda and the only difference I noted was that the mixture did not become syrupy. I continued, undaunted and prepared the rest of the recipe. What wonderful granita. I know that I will make it again and again. Thank you for this treat!

      So delicious! I did not use the zest, and added 1/4 tsp of vanilla. You can also freeze these in ice cube trays, then pulse in a food processor, to save yourself the scraping steps. For the presentation, I saved the lime halves, and served the granita mounded in them like little watermelons (you could even use currants, if you want "seeds"). Tasted and looked great!
