Summer Salad are a staple for hot summer days, for lunch, dinner or dessert.
This June recipes will focus on delicious refreshing salads! There are many variations to choose from – fruit salads, vegetable salads or combinations of fruits and vegetables!
We love Watermelon. Because of our love, I’m starting June with this cool, crisp, juicy, and delicious fruit. I saw an article and several demonstrations for roasting or grilling Watermelon! I thought, sounds so crazy, so I decided to take the challenge, prepare it and see how it tastes!
Prepared two different versions (actually 3); a Chipolte rubbed 3.5hr Roasted Watermelon AND Grilled Watermelon Steaks…I use that word VERY loosely. Then, made the leftovers into BBQ Watermelon Bites.
An original recipe from Ducks Eartery in NYC first cooked this watermelon “Ham”, “as an experiment of how people view meat.” describes the Chef & owner @WillHorowitz. The finished Watermelon recipe looks amazing . . .cured 4-6 days, dried, then smoked for 8 hrs and finished in a pan to take on the “ham roast” look. When we are able to travel back to NYC, I will be sure to head to Ducks and try the orginal, as it probably tastes amazing.
I chose a few short-cut variations of the original idea to get the feel for trying something different, and see where it would take me!
