All the wonderful fresh fruit of summer, whatever is in season, makes refreshing fruit salads. I use whatever is going locally the day I make it, berries, peaches, apricots, pineapple, melons etc., mmmm lushious!!
You can add extra lime juice for tang, and honey for extra sweetness. If your watermelon is good and sweet, omit the honey. For a pretty presentation, garnish with watermelon balls and fresh mint sprigs.
This 4 ingredient pie is just what you need on a hot summer day! Easy, light and delicious. Try it with sugar-free and reduced fat ingredients to make it even healthier! Based on a recipe from Quick Cooking magazine.
These are Delicious! I concocted this from three different recipes for the most watermelon flavor. The orange juice paired with the watermelon gives these popsicles the color of a beautiful sunset, which is a great time to have one.
A great summer salad that is sweet and tart with a touch of heat. I prefer this chilled as I like the coolness to go with the spicy, but it can be served at room temperature. I got this from a cookbook that I have since lost, but it is a very easy recipe to remember. Time includes all prep, cooking and standing time, but not chill time.
Sure to make your picnic a LOT more interesting or the Hempstead, TX Watermelon Festival! Here are three ways to achieve this dastardly deed. I prefer rum over vodka for this but champagne is nice too especially with the open and honest method. UPDATE: I tried this recently with Vanilla Vodka and OMG! It was FAB!
BUT FIRST- Rinse the whole melon to remove any dirt or icky stuff that might be on the skin- seen or unseen! ewwww!!!! I never used to do this part until I saw a large dog "marking" the watermelons! EWWWWWWW! NOW I wash them VERY WELL! ugh!
Now all that is left to do is to choose which method you would like to use!
Cooking time does not include the hours of cooling.
Have a great time!
