2 cups olive oil

Au Poivre Seasoning
1/4 cup sugar

Cut the watermelon lengthwise, about 2 inches. It should be nice and thick. Cut the watermelon planks into 3×4-inch rectangles. Place in a deep container and marinate with the vinegar and oil for about 1 hour. Mix sugar, salt, and all of the peppers. Remove the watermelon from its marinade and generously season with mixture.

5 minutes.
