Today is National Watermelon Day. If you’ve only enjoyed watermelon by the slice or in fruit salad—or a Watermelon Martini—here are new ways to enjoy the summer favorite:
Chocolate Watermelon. Drizzle a slice of watermelon with chocolate sauce.
Coconut “Cake.” Cut 8-9-inch circles from the middle of a large watermelon. Use them as cake layers and fill with coconut whipped cream.
Cupcakes. Make watermelon “cupcakes” by adding scoops of fresh watermelon to paper cupcake holders. Ice with vanilla or fruit yogurt, and garnish with sprinkles or chopped nuts (photo at left).
Dessert Nachos. Top triangles of watermelon with vanilla yogurt and pistachio nuts or chocolate chips.
Dessert Pizza. Top a circle of watermelon, cut into triangular slices, with coconut, raisins, sultanas and white chocolate chips (photo below). To make this your fruit-and-cheese course, replace the coconut with crumbled blue cheese or goat cheese.
