Watermelon is one of those rare summer foods that you can't find easily any other time of the year. When it's in your store or at your local farmers' market, be sure to enjoy this delicious fruit while you can. Chilled and sliced, watermelon makes the ideal summertime snack, but we also like mixing things up and adding watermelon to some of our favorite dishes, both sweet and savory. As versatile as they are delicious, our favorite watermelon recipes will be the summer treat you've been looking for.
