I have yet to meet someone who doesn't like watermelon. I'm sure they're out there, but they're definitely in the minority when it comes to this popular summer fruit. Of course it's fabulous plain, but if you're looking for something different, try one of these recipes.
1 - Goat Cheese and Watermelon salad. Simply combine equal parts watermelon with goat cheese (or feta) and add some micro greens, basil, or mint. Drizzle with a bit of balsamic vinegar. You can plate it as pictured here and serve as a first course, or cut small round slices of watermelon, top with cheese, and offer it as a refreshing canapé. (photo credit)
2 - Grilled Watermelon via Food Blogga. Watermelon carmelizes wonderfully on the grill.
4 - Watermelon Juice by Foodie Goodie. The first time I had this was poolside at the Bellagio in Vegas...so perfect on a hot day!
5 - Watermelon Hornijto (tequilla mojito) via She Knows Parties
6 - Watermelon Bombe, Two Ways (beginner and expert) - via YumSugar. If this doesn't impress your guests - get new friends!
7 - Watermelon Gelatins by Martha Stewart
8 - Fruit Cocktail & Watermelon Cupcake by Flour Arrangements
9 - Watermelon Cookies by The Decorated Cookie. It doesn't taste like watermelon, but isn't it cute anyway?
