We’re getting into the hottest part of the year, but what better way to chill than with lush, ripe-and-ready watermelon! It was one of my favorite summer snacks as a kid. Now it seems like I’m seeing this cool fruit pop up more often in crafty recipes everywhere I go…
Here are a few I was able to round up as we continue to celebrate this marvelous melon during the months we need it most:
Chef Ross Burtwell combines fresh fruit with fire in this Grilled Texas Wild Caught Shrimp with Watermelon Ancho Glaze & Texas Watermelon Pico. Sounds like a mouthful and it is…they’re amazing! A perfectly healthly contender at any BBQ…
Gazpacho that’s good as can be! The fabulous Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa gave me this watermelon-infused super soup. Thanks guys!
When they’re in season, CINQ’s Heirloom Tomato Watermelon Salad is hard to beat…vine-ripened watermelon topped with tangy feta and an Asian-inspired rice vinaigrette. It’s light and lovely!
Cooking Connections set me up nicely with their simple, Southwest Watermelon Glazed Chicken. Pan sautéed with Cookwell and Company Watermelon Vinaigrette…freshness in a pinch!
This one’s always a winner no matter the season! La maestra Blanca Aldaco has quite the reputation for producing award-winning, adult beverages like her Watermelon Margarita. A Texan spirit with spirit!
The Spot is VERY well known in Galveston. Right off of the famed Seawall Boulevard! You must try their Watermelon Toss…a cool, crisp cocktail to conquer the boardwalk with. 😉
