Finally, June has arrived! Yeeeeah!
I have something to reveal to you all with the beginning of this new month. It is that currently I am obsessed with watermelons.
I could officially say that because only recently I have made over half a dozen watermelon recipes. Is it crazy? No, it isn’t. Right?
But what would you say about this craziness if I tell you that I have made them all of them in a row! So, that proves that I am officially crazy about watermelons. 🙂
I don’t know how long would it be like that, but this is it for the time being! Anyways, it’s the beginning of a new month. So there will be some new favorite things too!
Okay! okay! But that is only half the truth. The other half is that I have made some other dishes too, so that my dear husband and lovely daughter would not have to suffer with my hankerings! 😉 Now I earnestly think that I must stop making watermelon recipes for a while.
Having said that, I still remember all those happy times of the past, when my sister was so crazy about watermelons. This was the time when we were kids. No wonder that she is still crazy about this luscious fruit.
Whenever watermelons were available, she used to eat it a lot. And by saying a lot, I really mean A LOT! It was like 4-6 times in a day. Sometimes it was her only meal during that time. And even that wasn’t enough for her! 😉
However, when I look back in time, I wasn’t keen about watermelons so much. But now, so many things have changed, including my taste for watermelons. Now, I have become my sister’s replica in eating watermelons. I am as crazy about them as she is.
I also told her about this new FAVORITE thing of mine. And without a surprise, she got thrilled just by listening about watermelons. Her exhilaration showed that I have a tough competition to win for the award of ‘Craziest Watermelon Eater in Family’. If I don’t win that award, there would certainly be a tie between us, that I can tell definitely!! 🙂
But as of now there is no such official competition. That makes me think I should organize that in our next family gathering! That would be so much FUN! 🙂
And by talking about watermelons, my sister and I both went down to our childhood through memory lanes. Ah! That time was so GOOD!
As I always say, time flies. Yes, time does fly! We need to cherish our present, because time is like a toddler — small and precious. 🙂
Back to the watermelons! I know what you guys are thinking. You are thinking that if I have made so many recipes with watermelons, then why didn’t I share them on my blog yet!
Well, well, well! I will share them all with you but not in a row! So that you wouldn’t get bored with the same ingredient! 🙂 How’s the plan?
At least this is good for you guys that I would not force you to eat watermelons for so many meals! 😉
Alright, jokes apart! But mark my words, all these recipes are superior to each other in one way or the other. That’s a promise! Hi5 to that! 🙂
One by one I would share all of those refreshing and lip-smacking watermelon recipes with you all!
The Watermelon Onion Yogurt Chip Dip I am sharing today is wonderful for get-togethers. Also this fabulous dip is absolutely perfect for the summer season when we all crave for a chilled yogurt dip.
For me, this dip is all about watermelon, so this would make a watermelon lover’s favorite dip! Ultimate dip for summer snack time. Watermelon onion yogurt chip dip is indeed a light and refreshing classic dip perfect for hot days.
If you give me a choice between a cake or this fruity dip, you’ll surely find me standing next to the dip. And by ‘next to’, I mean completely digging into the bowl full of fruity goodness. And I would be happier if I get to eat this dip alone without anything else!
I mean, I can actually eat this with just a spoon — I barely need the chips, crackers, or fruits.
With that said, I served this much creamy watermelon onion yogurt dip with some chips, but you can serve these with whatever you like!
This dip is painlessly easy and quick! And to tell you again, this is supremely addictive too! 🙂
The grated watermelon oozing sweet juice adds so much flavor and natural sweetness. And onion adds the perfect crunch.
This would become an absolute delight for weight watchers, as there is no cheese in this dip. Try this version that’s made with Greek yogurt. But if someday you are not in the mood of a creamy yogurt, you can use regular fat free yogurt instead.
It tastes wonderful, and is very simple to make, and nutritious too. It is the prettiest dip in my repertoire, one I will be revisiting all summer, and I want to be sure you don’t miss on it.
Alright, that’s it for today. My mind and heart is again with this mighty watermelon and I have to eat something made with this right now. 😉
I made it with 2% greek yogurt, and added grated watermelon along with fine chopped white onions and they worked exceptionally well. Seasoned with cumin powder, chaat masala and salt. Topped with fresh mild chilies, and chopped almonds. Also, don’t skimp on your chaat masala. This is a magical ingredient.
Let’s now learn to make this super indulging ‘Watermelon Onion Yogurt Dip’, before I drool more! 🙂
