There is something so satisfying in helping others out. This week for the Secret Recipe Club – Group D reveal, April needed an extra hand to make something from an orphaned blog and she asked if I would do it. Usually I get it made super fast, but we were gone all morning and I didn’t get it until late afternoon and poor April is sick, and yeah…so I’m just getting to it now. I hate that this blog was abandoned for so long. I hope you’ll also come back and visit me on Monday for my Group A reveal.
Shari from The Saucy Gourmet is the blog that I was asked to fill in on. I wish I had more time to create something from her. There were dozens of really tempting recipes. Since I knew I didn’t have a lot of time I had to ignore some of her more time consuming dishes, no matter how much I wanted to make them.
I fell in love the moment I found her very simple Watermelon with Mango and Lime. It wasn’t so much that it was easy that was appealing, it was that I was looking for a side dish to serve with dinner tonight and I just so happen to already have sliced mango and some limes, I just needed a Watermelon. Easy since the store is right next door.
I made it exactly how she did, the only change I made was to add a lime coconut “dressing” or cream to it. It was fabulous, easy and fresh. The perfect addition to dinner.
Watermelon Mango Salad with Coconut Lime Cream Dressing
This could be served as a side dish, a dessert – whatever, the combination of Watermelon, Mango and Lime is the sweet taste of summer.
- 4 pounds seedless watermelon — cut in 1? cubes
- 2 mangos — peeled, pitted and cut in 1 inch chunks
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lime zest
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar — or to taste
- 1 can of coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- Toss together the fruit, 1 tablespoon of lime juice, 1 teaspoon of finely grated lime zest and ½ teaspoon of sugar.
- Chill covered for about 20 minutes. I stirred it up real good at the 10 minute point.
- While it’s chilling, using a mixer blend together the coconut milk, 1 tablespoon of lime juice and the powdered sugar. Mix for 1-2 minutes or until thoroughly combined and mixed.
- Dish the fruit out onto a plate to serve, and cover in the Coconut-Lime Cream Sauce.
I topped each salad with a slice of sugared lime. They all enjoyed it very much!
