Delicious Summer Treats
Here are four great tasting recipes to try including drinks, salads, soup and fried chicken!
1 Qty 6 to 7lb watermelon
½ Cup Lime Juice
2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
¼ Cup Water
¼ Tsp Salt
Remove the seeds from watermelon.
Zest your limes (wash off the waxy coating on your limes and use a grater board to make shavings from the skin of lime).
Next make the Slushie Syrup in a small saucepan. Combine the salt, sugar and water, bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer until the sugar dissolves which should be about 2-3 minutes.
Remove pan from heat and stir in the lime juice and lime zest. Then let cool completely.
Once cooled, use a strainer and pour the liquid into a measuring cup.
Take ½ of the watermelon pieces and ½ the syrup into a blender and puree until smooth.
Strain into a metal loaf pan and repeat with the remaining watermelon pieces and syrup.
Cover and freeze (should take about 8 hours)
When ready to serve, use a fork and scrape the shavings to make large flakes and put in glasses
Top your glasses with the soda water and enjoy!
½ head lettuce, washed, torn into bite sized pieces
4 ounces spinach, fresh whole leaf
1 green onion, washed and minced
1 fresh tomato, washed and diced
1 cucumber, peeled, quartered, and sliced thin
Place in a large bowl and mix well! For slight variations of this tried and true classic, you can add items like hard boiled eggs, thin shavings of ham or turkey, onion slices or chopped green, yellow and red peppers. Makes 4 servings.
