Cool and refreshing breakfast fruit

Summer is here and what would summer be without watermelon?  We serve this as a fruit course during the month of July.  It is the perfect fruit, juicy and refreshing on a hot summer day.  The sauce is a tangy, gingery sauce.  The chopped pistachios give the dish great contrast in both tastes and textures.  It is sweet and salty,  juicy and crunchy.  It couldn’t be easier to make!

Start by cubing one-inch squares of fresh seedless watermelon that has been chilled, pour the sauce over the cubes and sprinkle with some chopped pistachios and serve!

The sauce:

  • Stir together:
  • 6 oz of Greek yogurt (can use plain yogurt as a substitute)
  • 2 Tablespoons of honey
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated ginger

 Serving suggestions:  This can be served on a plate or in a bowl.  If you are having a large gathering you can hollow out the watermelon and serve from the hollowed watermelon rind.

This dish is very versatile.  Serve it as a breakfast fruit, a refreshing dessert or as a fruit salad.  It has been a hit with our guests and I’m confident you will love it too.

On Saturday we got some great fresh peaches from the farmer’s market and in about a week our black berries will be ready to pick.  This is the time of year to enjoy all the fresh fruit that is available locally!   We will be posting other recipes using fresh fruits and vegetables so keep checking our blog.
