Biting into a crisp, sweet slice of watermelon is the quintessential rite of passage for summer. Not only is it thirst-quenching and aptly named (watermelon is about 92% water), this melon is a good source of vitamins A, B6 and C.

We pulled together seven diverse ways — chopped into a fresh salad, seared with salmon dish, enjoyed as cool drink or breakfast bowl — to mix watermelon into your next meal, and we’re betting you’ll want to try them all.
