National Watermelon Day
We can’t go an entire summer without recognizing our good fruit friend, the watermelon. And what better day than today – National Watermelon Day! The mango and watermelon really have quite a lot in common, so we propose combining these two juicy and tasty fruits for a sweet, summery burst in some of your fav dishes.
Nothing says summer like a refreshing watermelon salad. We’re all for the classic minty and feta cheese-topped variety, but if you’ve started to have your fill by August, try our tropical mango version. This is an elevated recipe with quite a few ingredients, but you’re really just combining to create a delicious blend of flavors. If you can dice a mango, you’ll be good to go for this recipe!
Oh boy, do we love a good parfait. Breakfast, dessert or a snack, parfaits are perfect for every time of day. These homemade parfaits have a tasty watermelon jam layered throughout with added texture from the trendy chia seeds. Top with mango for a burst of sweet, and you’re good to go!
Would we ever say no to a margarita? I think we all know the answer to that one. We can’t think of a better poolside cocktail to cool down during those hot summer nights. With the refreshing watermelon, sweet mango and a kick of liquor, this blended margarita will be the talk of all your pals.
