Mouth-Watering Watermelon Salad
Whether you already live in a sunny climate or you’re counting down the moments till summer really beings, this summer salad is perfect for an outdoor BBQ or an indoor dinner with your close friends.
Why do we love watermelon so much? It’s subtle sweetness makes it perfect for a dessert or savory dish! It contains a massive amount of water, which is great for your skin and digestion! AND it packs a punch of Lycopene—a powerful carotenoid antioxidant that gives fruits and vegetables a pink or red color. It’s most often associated with tomatoes, but watermelon is actually a more concentrated source.
- -1 c watermelon (seeded)
- -3 medium tomatoes (more color the better!) cut into chunks
- -1 English cucumber
