Watermelon Wonders: Watermelon recipes to try on Watermelon Day! πŸ‰

It's a day to celebrate one of the most popular summer fruits in Malta (and possibly in the world) - happy Watermelon Day, folks! 😍

This fruit is loved on its own all over the world (except by me, sorry πŸ‘€), but it can be incorporated into so many different recipes - both savoury ones and sweet ones! Let’s have a look. πŸ˜‹

Salad

This might be the most β€˜basic’ option, but adding a few cubes of watermelon to your salad will give you a hydration boost as well as a balance of flavours. Watermelon tends to go well with feta, balsamic vinegar, and other salty or acidic ingredients. Check out this recipe for a Balsamic Watermelon Chicken Salad! 🀀

So can you imagine how refreshing it would be if you add watermelon? All you need to do is blend all the ingredients together and let the mixture chill in the fridge for a few hours. πŸ‘Œ

Ice lollies

This is probably the easiest one you can do. Watermelon ice lollies can be made by processing pieces of watermelon, putting them in an ice lolly mould and freezing them for a few hours or overnight. If you want to add other fruits, kiwi, mangos, and even strawberries would make a great combo. πŸ‰
