Classic summer dishes re-imagined

Rethinking a couple of summer go-tos with the help of watermelon

From sweet to savoury, there are many classic summer dishes we have in our repertoire that we can't wait to dust off when June arrives. As much as we love the traditional recipes, we're always looking for ways to put a subtle twist on them to surprise friends and family when they come over for a dinner al fresco.

Here are two interesting, but approachable, recipes using watermelon to help take things to the next level!
