I don’t think that there’s a food out there more summer-y and satisfying than watermelon. That feeling of chomping into a juicy, cold slice is the epitome of a summer heaven. But we underestimate how delicious watermelons can also be when enjoyed in savoury applications. Here are our top savoury watermelon recipes for you to try this summer.
Watermelon BBQ Sauce
We set the tone for summer with our Rhubarb BBQ Sauce, and if you were into that, then you need to try our watermelon BBQ sauce. This recipe uses fresh watermelon juice (that means throwing some watermelon in a blender) as the base for your perfect sweet and savoury barbecue sauce.
Watermelon Salad with Herbs and Cheese
If you’re looking for the perfect beach snack, this is it. This flavourful salad packs in the sweetness of freshly cubed watermelon, the saltiness of creamy feta cheese, and brings it all together with red onion and a generous helping of garden herbs.
Possibly the easiest summer appetizer out there. You can prepare and assemble these skewers in less than fifteen minutes. Just don’t skimp on the balsamic reduction, it will add major fancy points to these already aesthetically pleasing skewers.
Grilled Watermelon Steaks
We always think of watermelon as the cold, refreshing fruit to dig into at the end of a hot day. But what if I told you that watermelon is just as good on the grill as it is out of the fridge? Yep, place a thick slice on the BBQ, top with some goat cheese and black pepper, and enjoy the warm juiciness of watermelon steaks!
