Hot as in spicy. Cold as in chilled. Our watermelon plant isn’t going gangbusters, but it’s produced a few fruit. This is best with very ripe, very sweet fruit.
- 8 cups chopped fresh watermelon, seeded
- 1/4 cup cilantro, stems and all
- 1 jalapeno
- juice from 1 lime
- salt/pepper to taste
- strained yogurt or feta for garnish
Blend fruit, cilantro, pepper and lime juice until pureed. Season with salt and pepper. Chill for at least an hour and up to four. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Top with strained yogurt or feta and more cilantro. To strain yogurt, place desired amount of plain or Greek yogurt (we used a half cup of nonfat Greek) in a mesh strainer over a bowl, cover and drain in the refrigerator for about five hours or overnight. Discard excess liquid.
