Unique Ramadan Recipe 1: Watermelon With Yogurt

  April 08, 2022

This year Ramadan begins around Saturday, April 2. For 30 days Muslims observing Ramadan around the world abstain from drinking and eating from dawn to dusk and many break their fast with iftar, an evening meal that may begin with several dates and a glass of water. 

 

This month, every Saturday we will share a unique Ramadan recipe to help you stay energized throughout this Ramadan. 

 

Today’s Recipe: Watermelon With Yogurt, Chia Seeds, and Fried Rosemary

 

Let’s rehydrate and replenish your body with this invigorating watermelon salad, which gets bright acidity from a splash of fresh grapefruit juice and sweetness from the honey.

 

Time Needed: 20 minutes

 

There’s no law that says watermelon salads must incorporate feta. This renegade combination is at once sweet, tart, and savory—the kind of dish that’s as comfortable at the breakfast table as it is at a potluck.

 

Ingredients: 

 

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 (6-inch) rosemary sprig

1/2 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon honey

Kosher salt

1 (3-pound) seedless watermelon, rind removed, cut into 2-inch pieces

3 tablespoons fresh grapefruit juice

Flaky sea salt

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon chia seeds

 

Step 1

Heat oil in a small skillet over medium. Fry rosemary until crisp, about 20 seconds. Transfer to a paper towel to drain; set rosemary oil aside.

 

Step 2

Mix yogurt and honey in a small bowl; season with kosher salt.

 

Step 3

Toss watermelon and grapefruit juice in a large bowl; season with flaky sea salt.

 

Step 4

Spread yogurt on a large platter. Top with watermelon and crumble fried rosemary over. Drizzle 1 Tbsp. reserved rosemary oil over (save remaining oil for another use) and sprinkle with red pepper flakes and chia seeds.
