The inspiration for this granita came to me after a trip to New York in 2011. While I was there, I met up with my friend Melina Hammer for dinner. Melina was one of the first contacts I made in the blogging world when I set up ‘What Katie Ate’. She was very supportive to me, and I am thrilled we have kept in touch. We always meet up for drinks and dinner whenever I am in her neck of the woods. Last year, Melina kindly gave me some candy she had picked up during a tour of a local boutique sweet factory – it was flavoured with watermelon, chilli and salt, and I thought the combination would make for a fab dessert idea. Once made, this granita will keep in the freezer for 3 days.
