Watermelon Works

by in In Season, Recipes, May 20th, 2011

It’s almost summer and high time to take advantage of the season’s most succulent fruit: fresh watermelon. Ruby red, juicy and naturally sweet, this jumbo superfruit can be sliced and diced in a salad, grilled over an open flame or pureed and frozen. Our recipes boast welcomed ease and summer comfort and, best of all, they won’t leave you stressing over a single seed.

Food.com’s recipe for Marinated Grilled Chicken With Watermelon Salsa is an easy summer meal that celebrates the classic flavors of the outdoors.  Herb-Chicken is grilled and served with a heaping scoop of fruit and veggie salsa. Also great atop grilled seafood, this salsa will become a summer staple in your recipe box.

Looking to cool off after a day in the sun? Whip up a batch of Cooking Channel’s recipe for Watermelon Vodka Gazpacho. This chilled soup is packed with watermelon and fresh garden vegetables. No need to reheat this dish, so save some to bring to work tomorrow.

Sweet and savory flavors combine effortlessly in Food2’s recipe for Summer Feta and Watermelon Salad. This light salad is the perfect side to char-grilled cheeseburgers or pulled pork sandwiches, so make extra and serve at your next summer barbecue.

Nothing says summer like a crisp, cool cocktail. Break the heat with Food Network’s Watermelon Sours. Puree fresh watermelon chunks, and mix with gin and flavored liquors for a grown-up drink that is refreshing with just a hint of natural sweetness.
