From soups to sauces, we will show you a gallery of recipes that will make you think of watermelon in a new light. Summer recipes are plentiful but most fruit recipes are salads or drinks. Some of what we offer here can be made for filling lunches and dinners and watermelon is practically at 0 calories as well, so it makes a great ingredient for low-calorie desserts.
