We Love Watermelon! Tons of summery watermelon recipes from Diet.comWatermelon is one of the most refreshing summery fruits that we can think of, don't you agree?! With such delicious flavor payoff for so few calories, we can't think of a good reason NOT to eat watermelon this season!

And on top of its pleasant sweet juiciness, watermelon is also packed with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and the cancer-fighting pigment lycopene.

With a million different ways to enjoy this scrumptious fruit, we wanted to help you decide how to eat it next. Check out any of these flavorful, sweet, wonderfully-watermelony recipes, and try them out at your next summer picnic or barbecue!
