a sliced up ida red: check.
more water: check.
and yet it just wasn't cutting it - i needed ice! so to the freezer i marched only to find right before my eyes a ziplock bag of frozen honeydew melon waiting for me. hallelujah! this called for celebrations. and some melon margarita ice.
into the food processor went 2 cups of frozen melon and the juice of one freshly squeezed lime. that's it. blend it away, stopping to scrape down the sides a few times as you go until no chunks of melon remain. then scoop it into a bowl, or margarita glass if you have one, and top it with a little lime zest and a sprinkle of sea salt. serves two.
and booze-free so no hangover to boot! giddy up.
next up though - watermelon. come to mama.
