Recipe Ideas  from Gretchen. Thanks G!

Cucumber & Watermelon Salad: 4 cups watermelon deseeded and cubed or shaped with a baller; 2 cups English cucumber, sliced; 3 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped, 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice; 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar (optional). Take the watermelon, cucumber, mint and lime juice and mix it in a bowl. That's it! Super easy and SO yummy!

Pesto Spaghetti Squash with tomatoes: 1 spaghetti squash 1 cup fresh whole basil leaves (packed) 1/4 cup walnuts 1/3 cup good quality olive oil 2 cloves garlic +1 additional clove, minced salt and pepper 1T butter 2 cups fresh tomatoes chopped (I used a can of diced fire roasted tomatoes) 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts (optional) Preheat oven to 375; cut squash in half, remove all seeds, place face down into a large baking dish, and pour water in the dish so it comes about halfway up the pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes. In food processor, combine 1 cup of the basil leaves along with the walnuts, olive oil, 2 cloves of garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Process until smooth. When squash is done, scrape the insides of the squash with a fork to remove the insides of the squash and set aside. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Once melted, add the 1 clove of minced garlic. Stir in the squash, along with the pesto. Gently fold in the tomatoes. Serve.
