The best month of the year is finally here: National Watermelon Month! Since watermelon is summer’s favorite fruit, it’s no wonder why this sweet holiday falls in July. Take advantage of watermelon season and celebrate with these sweet treats all month long.
A Patriotic Spread
Everything red, white and blue shouldn’t be limited to the first weekend of the month. Made with watermelon, raspberries and blueberries, this charcuterie board is a creative way to bring a pop of patriotism to every table. Plus, the best part about charcuterie boards is how easily customizable they are – feel free to swap out anything on this board for other ingredients you already have on hand.
Sweet Summer Sips
From lounging pool-side to flipping meat on the grill, this delicious drink will become your new summer go-to. We’ve thrown watermelon simple syrup into the mix and garnished with watermelon slices to make this cocktail even more refreshing for hot summer days (and nights).
Recreate it with Rind
This side dish uses watermelon rind to create an absolutely drool-worthy recipe! Thin slices of watermelon rind take the place of traditional cabbage, while showcasing an inventive way to use the whole watermelon. Plate alongside hot dogs and hamburgers for an extra crunch.
