Don't get me wrong, I love a big juicy slice of watermelon as much as the next person but, I also like to experiment with it in a variety of savory dishes too. Watermelon adds a mild sweetness without overpowering the other ingredients. This melon is especially delicious next to bright and salty flavors like feta cheese, lime or cilantro. Check out these savory watermelon recipes and see how versatile this fruit really is.
Baked watermelon takes on a whole new identity. While in the oven, the watermelon steaks lose most of its water and intensifies in flavor. When watermelon is seasoned with soy sauce, garlic and sriracha, it's the vegan's alternative to spicy tuna.
If you've never tried a cold soup before, gazpacho should be your first sip. Watermelon, tomatoes, garlic, onion and more are blended into a cool and refreshing soup.
When you grill any fruit, the natural sugar caramelizes and intensifies the fruit's flavor. The tart and spicy shrimp compliment the smoky sweet cubes of watermelon.
Watermelon adds a soft sweetness to savory dishes like this watermelon and mint salad with avocado, feta and red onion. This light summer side dish is a healthy alternative to heavier, mayonnaise based salads.
