Few fruits say summer quite like fresh watermelon, and few flavors are as distinctive as the sweet tastes of this crisp, light delight.
Whether freshly-sliced and served on its own, blended into an incredible drink, or ready to grill as a 'steak', watermelon is one of the simplest and best melons to have ready to go in the kitchen. For sweet-and-spicy flavors, make a Southwestern Watermelon Salad. Or, to cool a hot meal with a slightly-sweet treat, try some of this melon in the form of Grilled Molasses Flank Steak with Watermelon Salsa: it is like having two Southern favorites with every single bite.
If you prefer to imbibe in your love of watermelon in a glass, serve up a pitcher of Watermelon-Mint Margaritas, or even try this fruit in the form of Chilled Watermelon Soup. And just when you were wondering what to do with the leftovers, grab our recipe for Pickled Watermelon Rind: yes, you read that right. You can turn these cubes into a sensation, so get those jars out and get ready to go. If that isn't quite what you had planned in the kitchen, just pour a few Honeysuckle-Watermelon Cocktails and relax.
