Mouthwatering Watermelon Recipes for National Watermelon Day!

Ahh, watermelon. The juiciest, most flavorful summer fruit there ever was. We love including luscious watermelon in cocktails and fruity salads, but it can do so much more! Read on for some of our favorite bloggers’ takes on wonderful watermelon.

Naturally, we’re starting things off with a zingy, fresh cocktail! These Watermelon Mexican Mules from The Candid Appetite feature tequila instead of traditional Moscow Mule vodka—but who’s complaining?

Molly from My Name is Yeh created these tiny watermelon-and-yogurt cakes for her baby chickens’ first birthday! For a more human-friendly version, she recommends lightly-sweetened yogurt or whipped cream to slather between watermelon slices.

We can always count on Half Baked Harvest to deliver on colorful, incredibly flavor-packed dishes, and these Minty Watermelon-Cucumber Margaritas are no exception. Whether you like your margs frozen or on the rocks, you won’t want to miss these.

If you’re already making delectable watermelon margaritas, you might as well save some watermelon to make the zesty salsa for these Grilled Halibut Tacos with Watermelon Salsa from Heather Christo. Serrano chili pepper, fresh cilantro, and lime are a perfect match for sweet, juicy watermelon.

There’s no better way to beat the heat than with an ultra-cool fruit-and-ice pop, like these Raspberry-Strawberry-Watermelon Pops from I Am a Food Blog. We love the tip about blending the fruit but not ALL the way—so there’s still delightful little chunks of fruit for texture.

Okay, we know there are countless ways to make a watermelon cocktail. But you NEED to try these Watermelon Ginger Spritzers from Kitchen Konfidence! Vibrant watermelon paired with sassy ginger beer is the way to go.

These tart Watermelon Raspberry Sorbet Sandwiches  from Dessert for Two will make you forget all about those traditional ice cream sandwiches of yesteryear. We’d wager these would even taste amazing with a little burrata on top.

This Grilled Watermelon Salad from What Should I Make For is summer on a plate. Grilled watermelon, crispy prosciutto, and tangy balsamic dressing elevate this dish to ULTRA craveable.

Sure, you’ve had a wedge salad before. But you’ve never had one like this Joy the Baker creation! Pile watermelon high with greens, avocado, feta, and jalapeno for a Watermelon Wedge you’ll never forget.

These Watermelon, Feta, and Blackberry Skewers from A Healthy Life for Me could honestly pass for appetizers OR dessert. So… that means we can have some before AND after dinner, right!?
