August 3 is Watermelon Day! Share some recipes with watermelon. Or a quick tip on how to slice watermelons without making it a mess!
I don’t have any recipes for watermelon. I don’t want to add anything with the exception of maybe a little sugar if the melon itself isn’t that sweet. I have seen and eaten pickled watermelon and although it is fine, I am not really craving that. However regular watermelon slice, especially when it is chilled – yum, can I have some right now? It’s not even hot or even warm right now but I could go for a nice big slice of watermelon.
You could make a fruit bowl and mix it up with some other cut up fruits. You could make a smoothie. You could make watermelon icicles and suck them like a lolly. You could cut them up and put them in a salad with feta cheese. Watermelon, feta cheese, onions & peppers on a skewer – yowza! Flank Steak with Watermelon Salad. Shrimp Skewers with Watermelon and Feta Salad. Watermelon Daiquiri with frozen watermelon slices. Watermelon sorbet which will be lighter than ice cream. Arugula Salad with Watermelon and Blue Cheese.
Despite all these delicious sounding and looking salads and recipes, I still prefer plain ole slices. And….and…watermelon juice with some ice and sugar. Not too much sugar. Strain out the seeds and get the juice. When serves cold, it is so refreshing and filling. It is one of the best things you can juice out and enjoy.
