There is nothing that screams summer more than a sweet, ripe, and juicy watermelon. I lOOOOVE summer, so of course, I LOOOOVE watermelon. It doesn’t hurt that that watermelons are pink either (my favorite color).
On top of being just plain delicious, watermelon is super hydrating….I mean duh WATERmelon, right??
I wanted to share two of my favorite recipes with you.
Watermelon Feta Salad
4 cups watermelon, cubed
1/4 small red onion, sliced
1 English cucumber, cut in half lengthwise and sliced into half-circles
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, sliced into thin strips
HONEY LIME VINAIGRETTE
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
Combine the watermelon, red onion, and cucumber in a large bowl.
In a small separate bowl, whisk together the honey, lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper, then drizzle over the watermelon salad ingredients and toss to combine.
Sprinkle the salad with the feta cheese and fresh basil, then toss again gently and serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.
3 pounds watermelon, rind, and seeds discarded and the flesh cut into pieces, plus thin slices of watermelon for garnish
1/2 cup vodka
1/4 cup Triple Sec
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
In a blender purée the watermelon pieces and strain the purée through a very fine sieve set over a pitcher, discarding the solids. (There should be about 2-1/3 cups juice). Stir in the vodka, the Triple Sec, and the lime juice, pour the cooler into long-stemmed glasses filled with ice cubes, and garnish each drink with a watermelon slice.
