What to eat when it’s hot, according to TikTok

watermelon with goat cheese

When it comes to surprising flavor combinations you wouldn’t expect to work, you may have heard of melon with blue cheese and mint. But that’s not the only contender out there. It seems that the freshness of the watermelon pairs well with the crumbly texture of the goat cheese. And there are several ways to try this taste experience. You can brown pieces of watermelon on a griddle and sprinkle them with crumbled goat cheese, for example. Then finish these tasty bites with a dash of balsamic vinegar. Alternatively, some TikTok users are turning watermelon slices into potential pizza slices topped with goat cheese, cucumber, and mint.

fruity spring rolls

Spring rolls are a common dim sum favorite in Chinese and Southeast Asian cuisines. They are usually stuffed with vegetables, shrimp or meat. But on TikTok, their rice paper wrappers are used not only for savory ingredients, but also for rolling up pieces of fresh fruit. From strawberries to kiwi to mango, budding chefs are having a field day checking out this staple of Asian cuisine, which can then be dipped in honey-sweetened yogurt.

Tomatoes, corn, bell peppers, chili peppers and lemon are the main components of a recipe that has garnered several million views on TikTok in recent weeks. And don’t forget black eyed beans, the same ingredient that inspired the name of this salad mix, which is traditionally served as a barbecue side dish in the U.S. In fact, this recipe hails from Texas. But TikTok users are putting their own spin on it, adding more exotic foods like avocado, mango or honey.
