Watermelon Yogurt Mint Smoothie

1-2 cups seedless watermelon chunks
1 tbsp. Honey
1 tbsp. Fresh mint or leaves for taste
1 cup lemon yogurt

Watermelon Crab Cups

6-8 watermelon cups (read instructions below)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
1 tsp. minced fresh dill
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped scallions
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1 lb. Cooked crabmeat, rinsed

Make the watermelon cups by cutting 3-inch tall and 3-inch wide cylinders of seedless watermelon. Hollow them out to form ‘cups.’ Once the cups are made, make the filling by mixing together the mayonnaise, relish, dill, celery, scallions, and hard-boiled eggs. Fold in the crab. (Tuna or eggs salad can also be used) Fill the watermelon cups and serve. Makes 6-8 servings.

Watermelon Champagne Sangria

2 cups chopped seedless watermelon
1 seedless orange, peeled and broken into sections
2 bananas, peeled and sliced

1 bottle dry champagne of choice

Grilled Shrimp w/Watermelon Lemongrass Glaze

2 tbsp. vegetable oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. minced fresh ginger or 1 tsp. ginger powder
2 tbsp. minced fresh lemongrass or 1 tsp. dry lemongrass, shredded
1/4 cup extra dry vermouth
2 tsp. soy sauce (optional)
1 cup watermelon, pureed
1/2 cup sugar
2 lbs. raw shrimp

Make the glaze by heating the oil in a 2- or 3-quart saucepan over medium high heat. Sauté the garlic, ginger, and lemongrass. Reduce heat to low and stir in the remaining ingredients (except for the shrimp). Divide the mixture in two, setting aside one half for serving as glaze, and the other for basting or marinating the raw shrimp. Do not mix marinade with the glaze to avoid contaminating the glaze/drizzle. Cook shrimp. Pour remaining glaze over and serve. Makes enough glaze for 2 lbs. of grilled shrimp serving 6-8.
