These simple, striking parfaits are the kind of dessert that wows guests but requires barely more effort than cutting fruit. Ripe watermelon cubes and coconut sorbet taste delicious (and look gorgeous) together, needing only pinches of lime zest for a tropical inflection and toasted coconut for crunch.
We think of watermelon as the stuff of fruit salads, but it's also great in savory ones. In this Vietnamese- and Thai-inspired recipe, melon and cucumber are the cool contrast to sliced chile and grilled pork (chicken works, too).
Watermelon cubes, lime juice, and grated ginger make this non-alcoholic "mocktail" a perfect warm-weather treat. It features the natural sweetener Truvia, which provided the recipe.
