Summer is officially over, which I can hardly believe! That flew by so quickly!! Watermelon is always a Summer favorite, so I thought I would give you three of my favorite recipes if you are looking to use up the watermelon you have left in the fridge.
My first recipe is from my friend Katie Rose with The Rose Table.
Watermelon Feta Checkerboard Salad
It’s simple, and only takes a few ingredients. All you need is Watermelon, Feta cheese, a drizzle of balsamic reduction and 1 sprig of mint. It’s a light, refreshing salad that is the perfect go to for a quick meal, or a beautiful salad for entertaining. When I am in a hurry, I just put throw it all together and don’t worry about the beautiful presentation, but the checkerboard makes for a fun meal to serve your guests.

My Second favorite way to use up watermelon is by making popsicles! Popsicles are a huge trend right now, and I have to say, I’m not opposed!
This recipe is super easy if you have popsicle molds because it only requires watermelon, sugar and lime juice. You put it all in a blender and then pour it in the molds to freeze, simple as that! If you want to make it a boozy pop, just add your favorite vodka. The sugar will help it freeze! Click here to see the original recipe.
My third recipe was made for us at our Wrangler baby shower and it was amazing! I was happily eating leftovers for a couple days!
Refreshing Watermelon Salad
This salad was the perfect summer side salad. We had it with BBQ, but you could have it with anything really! It has a few more ingredients which makes it a little more difficult for using up what you have left of that watermelon, but it is worth it! This recipe includes cucumbers, red onions, watermelon, salt & pepper, cilantro, feta, and lime juice. Click here to see the recipe.
