We may not be able to get Canadian-grown watermelons easily, but with the help of Brian Arrigo, a Canadian who grows in the U.S. and exports it back to Canada, this popular and thirst-quenching fruit can be enjoyed all year round. Here's a different way to enjoy watermelon: in a salad with grains and maple, another Canadian staple.

Assemble salad in a tall, glass bowl by layering 1/3 of the kamut on the bottom, topped by half each of the onions and celery, corn, and watermelon. Repeat.
Add the last 1/3 of the kamut to the top and sprinkle with the remaining 1 tbsp of diced green onion.
Present as a layered salad and toss just before serving.
