Fresh Watermelon with Cool Citrus Mascarpone

Though this cool dessert is amazing, you’d never find it on a menu in Italy, where they are smart enough to leave the perfect fruit alone. But I could not resist gilding the alleged lily.

Ingredients

  • 1

    orange

  • 2

    lemons

  • 1

    grapefruit

  • 1

    pound watermelon

  • 1

    cup mascarpone cheese

  • 2

    tablespoons sugar

Directions

Zest the orange, lemons, and grapefruit, 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 watermelon balls and sprinkle the fruit segments over and serve cool.
