When Life Gives You Melons…

…Make aguas frescas!

Cool, refreshing, and sweet, local melons are the perfect thing for a hot summer day. Especially when you blend them up into a refreshing summer bev!

If that’s not your thing, you can use melons for grilling, savory salads, gazpacho, or just a tasty snack on their own.

Pick up a chanterais, galia, or mini watermelon at this week’s market, and let the refreshment begin!
