Watermelon Summer

Summer calls for many great get togethers! Here in Arizona it is warm, warm, warm! Despite being so hot out, my summer weekends are almost booked solid. This means I don’t have a ton of time to be up in the kitchen making lots of dishes for visiting guests or to bring to a BBQ. Therefore, I always need my arsenal of easy yet impressive recipes. Summer recipes should be light and fresh and watermelon is the perfect vehicle! I love making watermelon margaritas for an easy summer drink, But I also like to eat my watermelon and have two other go to recipes for my watermelon.



Simple Fruit Salad
When you need something fast and easy. This is it!

Ingredients:

1/2 watermelon, hallowed out and cubed
1 pint of blueberries

Directions:

Combine watermelon and blueberries in a trifle dish or bowl. Yep, Two ingredients and combine. The flavors are really great together. You can also blend those together for your morning smoothie!


Grilled Watermelon Salad
Grilling is your other option! Classic summer options include anything grilled. Plus anything with a hefty amount of cheese is always a positive in my book!

Ingredients:

1/2 watermelon, hallowed out and cubed
sliced fresh burrata or mozzerella
1 jalapeno
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
sea salt to taste


Directions:

Grill pieces of watermelon. Place on plate and cover with fresh burrata or mozzerella cheese pieces.

Finely chop jalapeno and let it steep in extra virgin olive oil for 20 minutes. Drain the oil and save it to drizzle on top of the finished dish with some sea salt.



What is your favorite way to have watermelon?

  1. We just love watermelon in general. Unfortunately have bought much as it's heck expensive at the moment but it's on my list to look each time I'm at a store.
