From the Juicer: Fresh Watermelon and Cucumber Juice

I vaguely remember a time and place when "I'm too hot" was more than a string of random syllables. In such times and places, a glass of this gently flavored watermelon and cucumber juice with hints of lime and mint would really have hit the spot. So refreshing, so hydrating, so wildly inappropriate for my scarf- and boots-clad life. With any luck, though, some of you will be able to put its cooling properties to good use this season. More

Watermelon & Parsley Pops

Watermelon is one of those great summer fruits that works perfectly in both sweet and savory dishes. Tossed with some mint and feta, it makes a bang up salad; it's also great sprinkled with a bit of salt or chile for a hot 'n sweet snack. And it's this versatility that makes these Watermelon & Parsley Pops from People's Pops such a great combination of summery flavors. More
