Fresh fruit is everywhere now. Here are three interesting ways to prepare it.
Gazpacho with watermelon
5 C chopped seedless watermelon
1/2 C chopped yellow onion
1/2 C chopped green peppers
1/2-1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 C chopped cilantro
2 tsp. chopped jalapeno
1 TBS lime juice
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1 C finely chopped seedless watermelon, reserved for garnish
1/2-1 C finely diced avocado, reserved for garnish (optional)
Puree first 10 ingredients in a blender until smooth. Adjust seasonings as needed. Chill in fridge for at least 1 hour. Stir in finely chopped watermelon and avocado at serving time.
1 TBS lime zest
1/4 C lime juice
1/4 C honey
2 tsp. garlic chili sauce
pinch of salt
1 watermelon, medium sized
1 TBS fresh chopped cilantro
Preheat grill to high. In a bowl, whisk together lime zest, juice, 3 TBS of honey, garlic chili sauce and salt. Cut watermelon into 1-inch thick wedges. Lightly drizzle each side with remaining honey and place on grill. Grill until just browned, about 2 minutes per side. Place watermelon slices on a plate and drizzle with lime dressing. Garnish with cilantro.
Grilled peach salad
3 fresh peaches pitted, quartered
2 TBS oil
8 C loosely packed, torn romaine lettuce
1/2 C coarsely chopped cashews
