How do we use this product?
Though fresh is the most common way to enjoy the fruit, watermelon actually tastes quite sweet when it's cooked and paired with other cooked ingredients. Brush thick watermelon slices with olive oil and grill them for a few minutes on each side. The cooked watermelon will have a smoky and sweet flavor that complements grilled chicken or pork chops. Make watermelon salsa to top chicken or fish tacos. Dice grilled watermelon and combine it with minced jalapenos, red onions and a squirt of fresh lime juice. Stir in a bit of cayenne pepper for added spice.
The natural sweetness of watermelon can enhance a dessert and help you create the perfect ending to your meal without going overboard on sugar.
