Honey-Citrus Dressing for Watermelon

Cook’s notes: I modified a recipe from Busy Cooks for watermelon with a light citrus dressing. Ripe watermelon doesn’t really need anything else, but this citrus dressing is marvelous. It tastes like a margarita. Several guests at the party wanted to throw it all in the blender! This is also good on pineapple chunks.

  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 4 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon silver tequila
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon mango hot sauce (or Tabasco or any hot sauce)

Blend all ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid; stir until honey dissolves, and then put the lid on and shake well to combine. Refrigerate dressing for 1 to 2 hours before serving. Drizzle dressing over watermelon or pineapple chunks.
