6 Ways to Serve Watermelon

by Berkeley Wellness  

Watermelon is more versatile than you may think. Use melon to flavor drinks, sweeten a summer salad, or even make a cold summer soup. Here are six serving suggestions for watermelon.

1. Purée watermelon, pour into ice cube trays, and freeze. Use to chill summer drinks.

2. Cube watermelon and combine with cubes of cucumber, diced red onion, and toasted pumpkin seeds. Toss with a sherry vinegar dressing for a summer salad.

3. Cube watermelon and freeze. Add the frozen melon to smoothies instead of ice cubes.

4. Purée watermelon, strawberries, and fresh mint for a refreshing summer soup. Serve topped with grated lime zest and a dollop of nonfat sour cream.

5. Blend watermelon, basil, parsley, and red onion. Strain and mix with olive oil, rice wine vinegar, and black pepper for a vinaigrette.

6. Very finely mince watermelon and drain slightly. Stir into reduced-fat sour cream along with minced chives. Serve as a sweet-savory sandwich spread.
