Watermelon is so delicious and so sweet. This incredibe Summer fruit has a high water content and is also a good source of Vitamins A and C as well as potassium and lycopene, an antioxidant known to help in the fight against heart disease and several cancers. In addition to being good for you, it is pretty rare to find someone who doesn't like watermelon...so it's always sure to be a hit when you have a crowd to please.
I would like to share some great watermelon ideas for your next Summer gathering or party. They are all very delicous and creative. Instead of just slicing watermelon up and serving it on a plate with the usual dessert or in a fruit salad, try making a delicious watermerlon cooler that is served in a watermelon keg. It is easier than you think. You will need to order the Spigot online. See below and click on the links for the recipes and directions.
Vodka Watermelon Cooler
Zesty Watermelon Salsa
Watermelon Cups with Feta and Mint
I hope you try some of these recipes. The watermelon cooler, keg to serve it in, the yummy salsa and feta appetizer squares are all so refreshing, festive and perfect with the hot and humid weather we have had recently. Enjoy!
