What better way to enjoy the dog days of summer than with sweet and refreshing watermelon! There are so many interesting ways to serve up this juicy and refreshing fruit so the next time you’re pool side with your friends be sure to try one of these super-easy recipes.

Watermelon Mint Salad

Either cube watermelon or use a melon baller and toss with some fresh chopped mint and a squeeze of lemon and/or lime juice for a bit of a zing. Fancy it up with slivered lemon rind.

Watermelon Summer Salad

Toss watermelon chunks with cubed feta cheese, Kalamata olives and your favorite salad greens. Dress the salad with olive oil, fresh lemon juice and Kosher salt or with balsamic vinaigrette. You can also try my favorite Quick & Kosher homemade balsamic dressing – but feel free to use light mayo, I do all the time.

Sweet and Sour Watermelon Juice

Remove the rind and watermelon seeds and place the flesh in a juicer or food processor until liquid. Combine with as much fresh lime juice and ginger as you can handle for a cool cleansing elixir.

What’s your favorite thing to do with watermelon in the summer? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to share some of your ideas with my family.
