Simple Recipes for Watermelon
1. Many recipes are tried and true, no fail show-stoppers which please crowds through visual presentation.
Such is the old-fashioned Watermelon Boat where the meat of the melon is scooped out and the hulled rind is refilled with a barrage of fruit selections.
Have you ever created this simple recipe? And if so, what fruit did you choose to use as a filler? As you think about that, we will share our favorites.
We like to use the following melons in ball-form: honeydew, yellow and red meat watermelons, and cantaloupe.
Time to Add Splashes of Color to Your Diet Plan
Now we have a beautiful array of color that can be set off using other selections. Let's add a few purple seedless grapes and small whole strawberries.
Other berries will also enhance colors such as raspberries, blueberries and blackberries.

2. Add chunks of watermelon to your next side salad for a refreshing bite.
