Watermelon ideas
 
Watermelon season is here! Awesome - I love the stuff, but could use some serving ideas and recipes. I recently made a salad of chopped watermelon with a crumble of feta and some snipped mint that was pretty good.

What do you do with watermelon?

My favorite recipe for watermelon has four ingredients: watermelon, a sharp knife, a plate, and a napkin (or stack of them). I love, love, love sweet, crisp, ice cold watermelon all by itself. :yum:

We had a country style pork rib dish week before last. It had asian flavors and a lightly pickled watermelon side dish. The recipe came from a recent BA mag.

I like to make watermelon sorbet or granita.

Remove the seeds, puree in a blender, & pour into ice cube trays. Plunk a watermelon ice cube in your vodka ;-)

Drizzled w/ balsamic vinegar.

In a salad with crab or shrimp salad & mixed greens.

Cut the melon in rectangles, top w/ brie, wrap with prosciutto.

Rachel Ray recently did a segment on watermelon:

Steven and Chris have some good sounding watermelon recipes:

The LCBO Food and Drink magazine also does:

Southern Living does as well:

Let us know which, if any, you try! I'm liking the watermelon ice cube idea...

I tend to cut a wedge, sit on the back steps, and see how far I can spit the seeds...although I'm liking Harry's way of eating watermelon...
