Pairs with: Sauvignon Blanc, 2014
This food and wine experience is best served with another pairing: California sunshine and a good conversation. Enjoy!
- 6 cups watermelon
- 2 large heirloom tomatoes
- 1 cucumber
- 1 serrano pepper, minced
- 1 lime
- ¼ cup cilantro, finely chopped
- ¼ cup basil, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- Pinch of salt
- Mint leaves for garnish
Chop watermelon into large cubes, removing as many seeds as possible. Puree in blender, leaving out a few cubes to use as garnish or just for snacking. Quarter the tomatoes and remove seeds. Peel and roughly chop cucumbers. Place tomatoes and cucumbers in blender and puree with watermelon. Put the mixture through a sieve to remove extra pulp. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the cilantro, basil, serrano pepper, sugar and lime. Salt to taste. Chill for at least 30 minutes. To serve, add extra watermelon cubes and mint leaves. Summerland’s fruit-forward Sauvignon Blanc pulls up the fresh notes of summer fruit and mint in this dish, while balancing its spice with low acidity.
