Ingredients

  • 4 Cups seedless watermelon chunks
  • ½ Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves
  • ⅛ Teaspoon salt
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
  • Fresh mint leaves, optional

Directions

Place the watermelon, sugar, lemon juice, chopped mint, salt and tomatoes in a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth, about 1 minute. Strain the mixture through a sieve over a large bowl, stirring to push the liquid through. Discard the pulp.

Pour the mixture into a 13-by-9-inch metal baking pan, and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze 4 to 6 hours, scraping the mixture with a spoon every hour to create ice flakes.

Serve cold in small dishes or glasses and garnish with mint leaves, if desired.

Tomato Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Tomato Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
