Wonderful Watermelon! Tasty Recipes for Watermelon
I love watermelon! It is my favorite fruit. One of the best parts of summer is watermelon. So I was thinking that maybe I would share some great ideas for watermelon.
When we took our trip to the Gaylord Texan, they had watermelon water on their breakfast buffet. All I have to say is I was in heaven and drank about 4 glasses of the delicious watermelon goodness.
So when I got home I kept wanting it so I dived in and figured out how to make it.
6 c watermelon cut into pieces.
2 – 4 cups of drinking water
1 T Honey or 2 T Sugar
Place watermelon in blender and cover with water and process until smooth (you may have to do several batches).
Mix in honey or sugar
Add a squeeze of lime juice.
Serve as is or over ice
3 c Chopped watermelon
1/2 c Green bell peppers, chopped
2 tb Lime juice
1 tb Chopped cilantro
1 tb Chopped green onion
1 tb Jalapeno peppers, chopped*
1/2 ts Garlic salt
* Use up to 2 TBS. chopped jalapenos, depending on taste.
Combine all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour. Serve on
sliced oranges or cheese-filled manicotti. Or, top 1 cup sour cream
with 1 cup salsa and serve with chips. PER SERVING: 1/2 cup =
