1 castron cubulete de pepene rosu, fara samburi si coaja
4 linguri apa de flori de portocal (l’eau de fleur d’oranger) + 2 lgt zahar pudra
Amestecam apa de flori de portocal cu zaharul pudra pana se dizolva zaharul. Turnam peste pepene si amestecam cu grija. Pastram la frigider minim o ora, servim foarte rece, presarat cu frunze de menta verde, proaspata. Pofta buna! ♥
English version: Moroccan Watermelon SaladSummer is far from being over in Bucharest. 3 days of very hot weather are expected, again. At least 35 degrees Celsius. 3 days without my oven? Not a problem! Or is it? Although I have so many fresh fruits and vegetables to choose from right now, and the perfect food is a tabuleh salad, I’m still constantly thinking of baking something :) At least some brownies… The best dessert I could prepare for these hot days was this delicious marocan salad. I’ve first tried it in in Marrakech, almost 3 years ago and it stole my heart. So easy to prepare yet so special and refreshing. I’ll allways remember the great time we had in Morocco and the delicious almonds milk, spices, chicken tajine with pickled lemon and green olives, the incredible Moroccan pastries. I just love the „corne de gazelle”, the most delicate almond pastry I have ever tried. I’ll have to try baking some of this soon. Untill then, chill with a refreshing, mint flavored watermelon salad. Enjoy!
1/2 watermelon, cut in little cubes, seeds removed
4 tablespoons fleur d’oranger water + 2 teaspoons of confectioners sugar
fresh mint leafs
Mix sugar and fleur d’oranger water until sugar dissolves well. Pour the syrup over the watermelon and mix carefully. Refrigerate for minimum 1 hour. Serve chilled, with fresh mint leafs. Enjoy!
