There's nothing quite like eating that first ripe watermelon of the season: Its juice dribbles down your chin, but you don't mind. The subtle sweetness is intoxicating. While we never get sick of eating of watermelon, cantaloupe, or honeydew out of hand (really, never), they're just as swoonworthy in a recipe as they are as a slice. Not convinced? Take one bite of melon salad with mint, feta, and fiery harissa, or a sip of perfectly puckersome watermelonade and you'll be a convert. Here are 13 recipes with summer melon that are anything but melon-choly.
