Watermelon Rosé Popsicles

Last year, a bar in NYC started serving popsicles in their prosecco & Rosé. Naturally I needed to try it. But since I was not in New York, I decided it was easy enough to make myself. And it was delicious.

This year I took it up a notch, and added some Rosé directly into my popsicles. And as expected, it was  amazing!

Watermelon & Feta Salad

I would like to point out that I created this salad long before sweetgreen released their late summer menu with a very similar looking salad. Honestly, I am quite impressed that I came up with something that now costs $9 dollars at sweetgreen.

However, my version is so much better because I added a Mediterranean flair by using some of my favorite toppings from my favorite fast casual spot Cava Grill. (p.s. have you tried the Falafel, they are the best Falafel i have had in the US, of anyone from Cava Grill is reading this please send me your recipe!!)

Let me just mention, I have never pickled anything and I hate pickles, but I really like pickled onions. I just used the simplest pickled onion recipe I could find. The recipe said it only takes an hour, however I would suggest to wait a few more if you have them. I also attempted to marinate the cucumbers in the same way that Cava does with what I believe to be olive oil and lemon. I swear they just taste so much better this way.

Watermelon & Feta are a match made in heaven but this salad takes it up a notch with a Mediterranean twist.

  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp sugar

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups arugula

Directions

  1. Pickle the onions: Slice the onions as thin as you can and place them in a jar. Add the vinegar sugar, salt, and water to a small bowl. Mix well. Pour the mixture into the jar. Keep at room temperature at least an hour or place the jar in the fridge for up to a week.
  2. Make the cucumbers: Dice the cucumbers and put into a jar. Add the lemon juice and olive oil to a small bowl. Mix until combined. Pour half the mixture into the jar. Refrigerate the cucumbers for an hour or overnight.
  3. Use a melon baller to ball watermelon.

  5. Use the remaining lemon olive oil vinaigrette to dress the salad.

Watermelon, Cantaloupe & Mozzarella Skewers

This is another “recipe” I have been seeing all over Instagram that I wanted to recreate.

When I started working on this recipe, it was probably 9:30 am on a Saturday morning. As I was carefully balling watermelon & cantaloupe (which by the way is very hard for me to spell), I was thinking to myself, I bet I am the only person who woke up early this morning to ball fruit. But hey I am not complaining. Actually I found it quite relaxing as is cooking to me in general.

Watermelon Heart Fruit Kabob

The Superbowl ended less than 12 hours ago but its time to move on to the next holiday! Valentines Day! I am taking a break from ingredient of the week to share a few Valentines Day inspired recipes. Just because I am not sharing an ingredient doesn’t mean this week’s recipes won’t feature fruits or vegetables (well, most of them will ;)).

Today I am sharing watermelon heart fruit kabobs! Yes, watermelons are not in season and may be hard to find but if you can find them the pink color is perfect for Valentine’s day. Even strawberries aren’t in season in February but since they are synonymous with Valentine’s Day, I went ahead and broke all the rules.

To make the watermelon hearts, I simply used a cookie cutter. I sliced a baby watermelon into small slices and then used a metal heart shape cookie cutter to cut out hearts. This is a perfect healthy activity to do with kids and a great addition to any meal or snack! I think I will eat these fruit kabobs with yogurt for breakfast!
