Make-Ahead Coconut Forbidden Rice with Tofu and Summer Fruit

Serious Eats Suzanne Lehrer Post a comment

Stone fruits and melons bring to mind portable beach snacks, bubbling cobbler or juice dripping down your chin. But as we wrap up our leisurely summer weekends (and produce) and transition to fall, there's no need to leave the fruit behind—you can pack it in cold grain salads for an office lunch. More

From the Pastry Dungeon: Watermelon-Mint Shrub with Watermelon Spoom

Sweets Anna Markow Post a comment

Shrubs have been gaining in popularity lately. An old-timey way of preserving, they generally involve fruit, sugar, and vinegar, and make quite a refreshing beverage. I've paired it with a mint simple syrup, pickled watermelon rind, and watermelon spoom (you know, that sorbet with the meringue in it). Watermelon three ways? Rejoice! More

From the Juicer: Fresh Watermelon and Cucumber Juice

Drinks Carolyn Cope Post a comment

I vaguely remember a time and place when "I'm too hot" was more than a string of random syllables. In such times and places, a glass of this gently flavored watermelon and cucumber juice with hints of lime and mint would really have hit the spot. So refreshing, so hydrating, so wildly inappropriate for my scarf- and boots-clad life. With any luck, though, some of you will be able to put its cooling properties to good use this season. More

Cool Down with 3 Fresh Limeade Recipes

Drinks Autumn Giles 2 comments

We've already had a string of exceptionally hot, humid days here in NYC, so the need for something refreshing and delicious that isn't necessarily boozy is especially acute. Limeade is just different enough that it seems like an impressive addition to a summer picnic lunch or dinner party, but is still ridiculously easy to make from scratch. Here are three fresh takes on limeade that are just as good as the original. More

Max and Eli Sussman's Watermelon Gazpacho

Kate Williams Post a comment

While many tomato gazpachos could easily be mistaken for watery salsa, this watermelon version from This is a Cookbook is anything but. Max and Eli Sussman blend together freshly strained watermelon juice with a rich, thickening mixture of almonds, bread, onion, bell peppers, and olive oil to create a vibrantly red, totally slurp-able, tail end of summer appetizer. It's a little on the sweet side, sure, but that's easily fixable with a drizzle of hot sauce and squirt of lemon. More
