Watermelons are a classic summer road stand fruit that sometimes goes to waste because they're so large. We've compiled all our favorite watermelon recipes from past summers and put them on this slideshow so you can make the most of every last bite.

Our favorite? Instant Watermelon Pops. Here's the recipe:

Instant Watermelon Pops

Watermelon wedges
Flavored salts
Freshly ground pepper
Local honey
Fresh lime juice
Ground red pepper

Cut a 1-inch slit into the rind of a just-cut watermelon wedge, and insert a wooden stick. Serve pops a variety of ways: Sprinkle with flavored salts and freshly ground pepper, drizzle with local honey and fresh lime juice, dust with red pepper, or add a splash of schnapps.
