How to make Watermelon Fries with Marshmallow Dip
There are just a few simple ingredients you’ll need to make this recipe. They include:
- Seedless watermelon, rind removed and cut into “fries”
- Lime Zest
- Sea Salt
and for the dip, you’ll need:
- softened cream cheese
- marshmallow creme (show in the photo below)
The best way I’ve found to cut watermelon in these “fry-like” shapes is to cut a 1/2″ slice from your watermelon, then trim the rind. Cut into strips and you can square them off once cut if you’d like.
The watermelon is very juicy at this point and so I recommend laying the “fries” onto a plate lined with paper towels just to absorb the excess moisture.
To make the dip, simply bring cream cheese close to room temperature. I find if you beat it first, then you don’t deflate that yummy marshmallow creme when you are incorporating it. Garnish with lime zest.
I promise, once you taste these, you will be making them for years to come. So yummy!
I like to plate serving sized portions and garnish with a lime wedges. That pinch of sea salt really gives that salty/sweet contrast I love so much. I think you are really going to love it!
