3 Delicious and Unexpected Ways To Prep Watermelons This Summer

Try these creative ways to enjoy that big juicy watermelon in your refrigerator. 


 

Got watermelons? Then, you need to try these three watermelon snack ideas that's more fun than just simply digging in and taking a bite: 

 

1 Top it up. 

We know it's delicious but what's the harm in trying to add more flavor to it? These wacky wedges are loaded up on the good stuff! Top watermelon triangles with other fruits such as kiwis, mangoes, and grapes. Crushed nuts like pistachios make good additions, too. It's a refreshing take on a fruit salad that lets the flavors of summer be the star. 

 

The chili in this salsa recipe gives it a kick- the longer it sits, the more intense the heat.

 

2 Grill it. 

 

Yes. Grill. Sunny days mean more time for grilling-dessert included! Slice a watermelon into thick wedges then grill. Drizzle with honey and sea salt before serving. You'll love the sweet, salty, and smoky flavors that accompany your juicy watermelon "steak". 

 

For fuss-free enjoyment, make sure to use a seedless variety of watermelon for this Greek-inspired treat.

 

3 Skewer it. 

It's a classic pairing made with incredibly fresh flavors. Thread sweet watermelon cubes, herby basil, and creamy mozzarella or salty feta cheese onto skewers. Then, drizzle with the earthy tang of balsamic vinegar. You've got yourself a summer salad on a stick that not only tastes delicious, it's easy to eat, too.
