Watermelon Fries are an easy, healthy and FUN snack! They’re perfect for hot summer days sitting by the pool. 


Is there anything better than a refreshing, sweet and juicy watermelon? I’m not convinced! Every week during the summer at the farmers market one of my favorite parts is picking up a huge watermelon for us to eat throughout the week. I either cut the watermelon into cubes, scoop it out with a melon baller, or make watermelon sticks, but recently I’ve been obsessed with cutting them into “fries”!


Yes, technically Watermelon Fries is just a watermelon cut into small sticks, but how much more fun is it to call them Watermelon Fries instead of watermelon sticks?? The kids love it too. Every time I get back from the farmers market with our watermelon Gemma cannot wait until we get our watermelon fries made and sprinkled with some Tajin. 


What would fries be without a delicious dipping sauce? Even Watermelon Fries need a good dipping situation. We serve ours with a yogurt sauce with some lime and honey mixed in. The recipe is below, but believe me it’s a game changer. It takes eating watermelon to a whole new level. 


Have you ever had a yellow watermelon? They’re not quite as common as the red ones you can get at most groceries, but if you ever run across one, you’ve GOT to try it. The taste is very similar to red watermelons, but they’re slightly sweeter and have subtle hints of honey. And they look beautiful cut on a plate next to their red counterpart.
