Tap watermelon; it should sound hollow

Few things taste better in late summer than a good, ripe watermelon. To make a good pick, tap on a green and cream-striped melon (avoid white spots!) with your knuckles – it should sound hollow, rather than muffled.

Then consider making this tasty watermelon salad:

Bring 1/4 cup each sugar and water to a simmer in a saucepan. Remove from the heat, add 3 mint sprigs and steep 10 minutes. Discard the mint; add the zest and juice of 1 lemon and a pinch of salt. Toss with 2 cups blueberries and 3 cups cubed watermelon. Let stand 15 minutes. Top with chopped mint.
