Nothing says summer like ice cold watermelon. Watermelon is high in Lycopene, a nutrient usually associated with tomatoes. But unlike tomatoes watermelons do not have to be cooked to release this heart healthy nutrient. Cup for cup watermelon has 40% more antioxidants than tomatoes.

This is The Organic Kitchen’s take on a traditional watermelon/mint/feta salad which is usually dressed with a white rice vinegar. I find that dressing a little strong and acidic so I opt for the smoother, creamier white balsamic from Prelibato. ( Found at speciality stores or click to have it delivered to your door)
