Celebrate Summer With These 15 Watermelon Recipes

Celebrate Summer With These 15 Watermelon Recipes

'Tis the season for watermelon, which means it's also the season for posts about watermelons, photos of adorable kids with faces covered in watermelon stickyness, and recipes using watermelon. Yippee for watermelon! Except this year, I was getting the feeling that there might be more watermelon posts than usual—and that watermelon cakes are super-duper hot this year. I thought it was my imagination, but then a co-worker posted a link to a watermelon cake, which led to discussions about watermelon and a ton of Pinterest board surfing.

Rather than sit on all of these great watermelon recipes, I figured I'd toss them into a post so you can add some really great recipes to your collection and maybe serve a dish or two that everyone raves about.

Watermelon "Cake"

The Gracious Pantry

The watermelon "cake" is a clean-eating/paleo-friendly dessert that's actually a real WATERMELON. There are really so many versions that I had a hard time choosing one. Since I've been spending a lot of time thinking about Tiffany and her blog, I decided to lead with her version. It looks good to me. Here's another one from Bakepedia and you can surf them all day long on Pinterest if these aren't enough for you.
