Fresh Watermelon with Cool Citrus Mascarpone
By Chef Mario Batali


1 Organic Oranges
2 Organic Lemon
1 Organic Grapefruit
1 pound Watermelon
1 cup Mascarpone Cheese
2 tablespoons Sugar


Zest the oranges, lemons, and grapefruit, and then use a sharp knife to cut off any remaining peel and pith.

Cut between the membranes to free the individual segments, working over a bowl to catch the juices.

Reserve the segments and juice separately.
Halve the watermelon lengthwise. Using a melon baller, cut the melon into balls and place in a shallow serving bowl. Add the reserved fruit juices and set aside.
In a blender, mix the mascarpone, fruit zests, and the sugar until smooth.

The mixture should be as thick as yogurt; if necessary, thin with a little water.

Drizzle the mascarpone over the watermelon balls, sprinkle with the fruit segments, and serve.
