Aug. 3 was National Watermelon Day, however, I’m a firm believer that celebrating this refreshing summertime treat shouldn’t last just one day.
To me, watermelon is the quintessential fruit of the summer. Since it’s 92% water, it’s very satisfying in the summer heat. You can add it to smoothies, have a watermelon cocktail, like this vodka watermelon slushie, or make a salad. You can even grill it. The options are limitless.
While super simple, one of my favorite ways to consume watermelon is the no-frills way of cutting it into cubes off the rind and enjoying it right away.
