Watermelon, Watermelon, Watermelon

Not much says summer like a wonderfully juicy watermelon.  As a kid, Sharon remembers her family going out on a hot summer evening to the local watermelon stand.  They sat at picnic tables eating huge ice cold wedges.  While it’s always great “as is,” there also are some fun things you can make with watermelon.  Here are a couple of ideas we enjoy: 

Mediterranean Watermelon Salad
1 c. watermelon, cubed
½ c. feta, crumbled
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
2 t. dried oregano
Handful mint leaves, stacked and sliced
Mix together in a bowl.  Serve.

Watermelon Margarita
2 c Tequila
1/2 c Triple Sec
3 c watermelon, seeded and pureed
1 c fresh lime juice
Blend together with ice and pour into glasses.
