Did I mention that we're having a heatwave? In New York, the hot sticky mess usually happens in July and by August we get a reprieve. But the months got confused this year because July was cool and rainy and so far August is steam bath. Oh, well, it can't last forever but in the meantime I'm in need of refreshing things to eat and drink.
It made sense to me then, in the summer heat, and I find myself craving it now. Icy cool watermelon spooned together with thick, honeyed Greek yogurt for a lovely contrast. Very refreshing. Now... loose clothes, hair up in a ponytail, cool breakfast and I'm ready to face the heat. OK, I'm ready to face it for a short time while I run errands and walk the dog. Then I'm ready to face the air conditioner. Enjoy!
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Ingredients (2 Servings)
- 2 Cups Greek style yogurt (I used 2%)
- 1/2 Teaspoon salt
- 1 Tablespoon honey plus extra for drizzling
- 1 Tablespoon water
- 1/2 Cup cubed seedless watermelon
Stir the yogurt and salt together and spoon into a piece of cheesecloth over a strainer. Place in a bowl to catch the drips and leave on the counter for 1 hour or in the refrigerator overnight. When ready, spoon into two serving bowls.
Mix together the honey and water and stir half into each bowl of yogurt. Top with the watermelon and drizzle on additional honey as desired.
