Upgrade: Watermelon!

Watermelon might be my favorite part of the summer months- it's right up there with sweet corn and beach weather. I try to get the most out of my favorite seasonal fruit by pretty much using it daily. These are two of my favorite uses for the delicious melon:

A super simple salad consisting of organic baby arugula, feta, red onions and watermelon slices sprinkled with chopped mint and feta. I sometimes add a balsamic glaze and a little olive oil as a dressing or I just leave it plain. It's a burst of summer in your mouth! Try it!! 

I also love to drink my watermelon. Just blending the fruit with a little ice is a perfect summer drink. But I like to take it up a notch and add mint leaves and lime juice. It's so simple yet so good!  And if it's a day that calls for a little celebration- adding a dash of rum or vodka is a fun addition!

  1. I love these recipe's! I never would have thought of this and usually stick to simply slicing up some watermelon for a snack. I can't wait to take it up a notch with these ideas!
