Watermelon is one of those quintessential foods for the summer. A great, bright pink (or golden) watermelon, heavy with juice and bursting with sweetness, is just what you need to relax and escape from the hottest days of the season. Each juicy bite helps keep you hydrated and can make a healthy, light meal too!
