To help celebrate Independence Day this year, I adapted a recipe from one I found on the National Watermelon Promotion Board website. It’s technically a “kids” recipe, but who cares? I certainly don’t because it looks and tastes great and that’s all that matters!
This is one of those things you can make for your home barbecue or to take to a friend’s house. It’s fun because it looks really cool and makes people say, “That’s made of what?” or, if their mouths are full, “Mmff made aff whullff?” Best of all, it’s easy to make. You’ll notice a lot of the recipes I feature on here are easy. I like easy.
The only difference between the recipe below and the “Kids’ Watermelon Pizza Supreme” on the website is that I substituted blueberries for raisins to put the “blue” in “Red, White & Blue Watermelon Pizza.” Enjoy!
1 (8 to 10-inch round and 1-inch thick) watermelon slice
1 cup strawberry preserves
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
½ to 1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
Place the watermelon slice on a serving platter and cut into 6 wedges, leaving them in the shape of a pizza. Spread the preserves over the watermelon and sprinkle the toppings over the top.
