I don’t know about you, but in our house, we start eating watermelon every day the moment we first spot one in our local farmers market. We happily eat it as is, straight out of the rind, but sometimes it’s fun to switch it up and serve our beloved fruit in new and exciting ways. We love everything from watermelon salads to soups to popsicles, and we are sharing our favorite recipes here.

Watermelon contains vitamin C and is also rich in lycopene and beta-carotene, which protects skin, lungs, nose, and throat. This is a food that you should be happy to feed your family, knowing it does loads of good to our bodies!
