This week Chef Joe is sharing a few more summer recipes with SOHO fans. First, his simple and oh-so-yummy watermelon punch. (We’re also offering it at the restaurant this week for $3 a glass).
4 cups cubed watermelon (1-2 inch diced)
4 cups cool filtered water
1/2 cup sugar
– In a blender, puree all ingredients together until smooth and pour over ice. Garnish with a small piece of watermelon and lime. (Mixture can be filtered if pulp is not desired).
Chef Joe also recommends trying the punch recipe with pineapples, cantaloupe, or honeydew melon for more tasty summer refreshment.
In addition to the popular fried green tomato slider mentioned last week, SOHO serves up crab cake sliders every evening. The recipe is below for those interested in trying the savory treat at home. If you’re in the mood to have someone else do the cooking, we’ll be happy to serve up a plate for you the restaurant – 3 sliders are only $10.
