Although they're now available all year round, somehow watermelons just taste best in the summer. Perhaps this is because there are few things as refreshing in the summer heat as a big slice of chilled watermelon. And watermelons are one of the healthiest snacks around - they contain generous amounts of vitamins C and A, along with potassium and magnesium. Watermelon also contains the antioxidant lycopene - in fact, it contains more lycopene than tomatoes! And two cups of watermelon will only put you back 100 calories, making it a delicious and filling snack.

Choosing a watermelon is simple enough - pick out one that's pleasantly rounded and symmetrical, and make sure it doesn't have any cuts, dents or bruises. Look for the pale yellow underside - that's where it sat on the ground while it was ripening. Pick it up - your watermelon should feel heavy for its size, since it should be over 90% water. Uncut, a watermelon keeps for about a week to 10 days at room temperature; after it has been cut open, cover it with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator. For the best flavor, eat what's left within a couple of days. There are loads of watermelon recipes out there, but who needs them when the juicy, red flesh tastes so good all by itself? Just slice it up and enjoy.
