Delicious Watermelon Recipes

Everyone should have a couple of watermelons at home when the fruit is in season. When someone visits, cutting up a watermelon and quickly throwing a wonderful, refreshing drink or snack together can impress and delight them.Check out the list of ten amazingly delicious watermelon recipes.

  1. Watermelon sorbet
    Cut up watermelon into chunks and toss together with a cup of sugar and a pinch of salt.
    Let the sweetened watermelon stand for a half hour. Then, throw it in a blender together with tomato juice and blend until smooth.
    Add a little lemon juice, stir thoroughly and freeze. Ball up the frozen mixture with an ice cream scoop and serve in a glass bowl.
  2. Watermelon mint salad
    Cube 2 pounds of watermelon and place on a plate.
    Sprinkle shredded mint leaves, finely chopped onion, salt and black pepper on the pieces.
    This salad goes well with grilled kebabs.
  3. Watermelon iced tea
    Boil 8 cups of water and pour in a pitcher. Steep 8 teabags in the water. Once the teabags are spent, discard them and let the hot tea in the pitcher cool.
    After a while, it should be ready to chill in the refrigerator. Right before you serve the iced tea, add a few chunks of watermelon to each glass, together with ice and basil.
  4. Minty watermelon slices
    Take a large knife to a watermelon and make two-inch slices.
    Quarter each slice into 4 wedges and array on a plate. Garnish these wedges with chopped mint leaves, lime zest and sugar.
    Dribble lime juice on the wedges and serve.
  5. Melon mozzarella salad
    You’ll need 3 types of melon: cantaloupe, watermelon and honeydew melon. Cube enough to fill 3 cups each and place in a large bowl.
    Sprinkle chopped basil, 2 tablespoons of honey, jalapeno, salt and crumbled mozzarella over the fruit pieces. Toss well and serve.
  6. Watermelon cooler
    You’ll need chilled seedless watermelon, limeade concentrate, fresh lime juice, ice and vodka.
    Throw these ingredients in a blender and purée until you have a smooth mixture. You may need to add water.
    Pour into tall glasses, mix in a touch of vodka and serve.
    Watermelon doesn’t keep well at all once it’s turned into pulp. You need to make sure to serve this drink no more than a couple of minutes after you make it.
