Lime Watermelon (it’s a game changer!)

Lime Watermelon – Sounds simple, but it’s going to change your life. Or, your summer.

Happy Labor Day! I hope you get to do something fabulous and fun. We’ve been enjoying a weekend with Michael’s family in town and have had lots of fun, fun meals. My favorite thing to bring to a barbecue lately?

Lime watermelon.

As in, watermelon + lime. Which basically is like eating a watermelon limeade.

You’re welcome.

I can take absolutely NO credit for this method (more a method than a recipe). It comes to me from my sisters Kate and Jordan, who got it from my talented/beautiful/always put together cousin Melissa.

It’s a holiday, and I know that watermelon season is just at it’s tail end, but in case you have any more cookouts to attend, add the zest and juice of a lime (or two!) to your next watermelon. Then, prepare to have your mind blown.

Happy day off, and happy party in your mouth!

Lime Watermelon


  • Yield: lots!

Description

A quick way to jazz up fresh fruit for your next cookout (or family dinner).


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 watermelon, peeled and cubed
  • zest and juice of 1-2 limes (I always start with 1 and go from there)

Instructions

  1. Toss the watermelon with the juice and zest of one lime. Taste and see if you’d like more lime juice. For a little more lime flavor, add the juice of the second lime. For a LOT more lime flavor, add the zest and juice of the second lime.

  1. I just happened onto your blog and love it! I think we would be real life friends 🙂 We are just starting the journey into GFDF and I am thrilled to have such a great resource! I just read your sweet little girls story on autism (and sitting here crying) I thought that maybe you would like to read ours. It is nice to know that you are not alone it this journey.

    Do you feel that the GFDF has made a difference? My husband isn’t quite on board.

  2. Wow Emily! I’m just flattered. I think I need to start looking at myself differently in the mirror. 🙂 I wish I could take credit for creating this, but it was another cousin that served it to us in San Diego. I guess this is how good cooking runs in the family?
