Craig Richards of St. Cecilia demoed this recipe at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. Love the combination of melon, cucumber and peppers.
This martini recipe came from the folks at East Atlanta Village Farmers Market. It’s from food blog Glue & Glitter. The original recipe called for watermelon, but it would work with any melon that came in your box. I got watermelon, I know there were other varieties as well.
I’ve seen lots of variations on the classic tomato caprese salad as people are mixing all kinds of fruit with wonderful fresh mozzarella. Here’s an adaption of one from Southern Living. The original recipe called for a mix of peaches , melons, strawberries and grapes. That was a little too much variety for my taste, but if you have any late summer peaches on hand, they’d be a delicious addition.
A quick note about the melons, if it isn’t too late – don’t throw away the seeds. Grinding them up in drinks like liquados is a traditional Mexican technique. The seeds become a thickener. This recipe was adapted from one published in Gourmet in 2008.
