5 Fun 4th July Watermelon Recipes / Running in a Skirt

Hi guys!

First off I want to wish the Hubs and very Happy Birthday!  We’re going to celebrate this upcoming weekend but today is the actual day.  He makes my world a better place and I’m so happy to celebrate with him.

I know I’ve been all watermelon all the time here on Running in a Skirt, but I sincerely can’t get enough of it this time of year.  The flavor just screams summertime and makes me happy just thinking about it. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one!  In fact, one of these recipes is THE most popular recipe on the site right now.  I’ll spill the detail on which one below.

So in honor of the upcoming holiday, I put together my all-time favorite watermelon recipes.  Sure, you can eat it plain… but these delightful 4th of July Watermelon recipes will bring a new level of fun to your next summer meal.  Serve them at a party, a beach house or just for your family.  I promise they will all be a hit.

From homemade salsa, popsicles and nice cream… this roundup is basically my love affair with the best summer fruit.  Enjoy!

5 Ingredient Watermelon Salsa

This salsa is so yum, unique and addictive.  It’s seasoned with fresh lime and cilantro and gets a kick from fresh jalapeno.  Serve with chips… but don’t blame me if you can’t stop at one.

    I was at an event yesterday, and they had watermelon, so of course I helped myself to a little (even though I was stuffed) and it was AMAZING. Now I am TOTALLY ready for some watermelon goodness!
