I don’t know about you, but summer time usually means watermelon yumminess in our house. Nothing beats a slice of watermelon to keep cool and quench your thirst at the same time (since watermelons tend to be about 91% water). 🙂
There are so many ways to enjoy one, especially if you end up with a seedless beauty that is super sweet, ripe, and ready to melt in your mouth. 😉 Here are a few fun, easy ways to enjoy yours this summer.
The easy breezy way to enjoy this fruity yumminess is to cut it up into bite size pieces, removing the rind, and placing it in the fridge for a nice refreshing snack any time of the day.
Or, if you’re a fan of watermelon slices, you can go old school and enjoy it picnic style.
If you’d like to add a sour tone to this sweet, yummy red meat – try sprinkling some lime juice and salt over your portion and see if that brings the right tone you were looking for.
If you’d like a spicy flare instead, may I suggest a Mexican favorite – chili powder (Trechas) over this and any other fruit you can think of really. 😉
Bought too much watermelon or it’s getting a little soggy because it’s been out in the elements or been in the fridge one day too long? No worries, add your rindless, seedless watermelon into the blender, with some water, to make your own batch of agua de sandia (watermelon water).
Pour it over some ice, add a sprig of mint and you’ve got a yummily, refreshing summer drink!
Add in your favorite liquor and you have a wonderfully refreshing watermelon flavored cocktail. 🙂
The key here is to get creative, have fun and enjoy!
