Nothing says summer like biting into a wedge of juicy melon, from cantaloupe to watermelon to casaba. While simple snacking is tasty, we’ve got five more ways to devour this seasonal goodie.


Sweet
Sip on a combo of watermelon, honeydew, creamy yogurt and some zip from fresh lime. This smoothie makes a quick and light breakfast or a satisfying mid-afternoon snack.

Savory
Salty prosciutto and juicy melon are a classic combination. Serve in cute little packages secured with fresh chives – elegant and simple party food.

Sizzling
A quick sear on the grill caramelizes the sugars in watermelon. Team it up with goat cheese, greens, and syrupy reduced balsamic vinegar. That’s my kind of summer salad!

Spicy
Cool cantaloupe helps put out the fire from red chiles in this fresh and light seafood dish.
