Spicy Watermelon

Spicy Watermelon

This recipe was given to us by our marketing gal who spent some time in Los Angeles. One of her favorite treats was from a neighborhood fruit stand off Sunset Boulevard. A Latino gentleman would cut up fresh fruit like pineapple, mango and watermelon and then top it off with lime juice and chili spices. She swears it’s good so we’re going to give it a go!

You’ll need:

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups cubed seeded watermelon
  • ½ lime, juiced

To make:
Mix spices together in a bowl until well blended. Put watermelon into two bowls, sprinkle evenly with spice mixture and top with lime juice.

Balsamic Beets on Toasties

Balsamic Beets on Toasties

Beets have loads of healthy benefits as they are packed full of vitamins and nutrients and have even been found to keep blood pressure in check. Plus, they’re DELICIOUS! Try this savory appetizer the next time you have folks over. 

You’ll need:

  • 1 baguette
  • 8oz garlic herb goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 bunch of beets with stems and leaves (about 3-4 beets)
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • ½ cup of candied walnuts, chopped

To make:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut baguette in ½ inch slices and brush both sides with olive oil. Bake 8-10 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking for even toasting. Set toasties aside.

In a bowl, combine goat cheese and heavy whipping cream. Use a hand mixer to blend until smooth. Set aside. 

Remove the greens from the beets and rinse. Gently pat dry. Stack the leaves and roll up into a cigar shape. Use a knife to cut leaves into ribbons and set aside.

Peel beets and then, using a mandoline, slice them into thin rounds. Slice rounds into ribbons and set aside. 

Heat a skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add greens, garlic, and 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar to the skillet. Sprinkle the green with salt and cook them for 2 minutes or until bright green and just wilted. Place cooked greens in a bowl and set aside. 

In the same skillet, add a drizzle of olive oil, beets, and balsamic vinegar and saute for 2 minutes until beets are tender. 

To build your toasties, spread goat cheese on the toasts. Top with beet greens, beets, and chopped candied walnuts. These are a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
