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.
Only Five Ingredients!
This beautiful salad has only five ingredients. Watermelon, mint, feta, sea salt and vinegar. This salad which is usually dressed with a white rice vinegar. I find that dressing a little strong and acidic so I opt for this smoother, creamier vinegar: Prelibato White Balsamic vinegar from Italy. You may get lucky and find it in a store, but I almost always have to buy online. Second choice, O California White Balsamic. (<—Amazon link) I find this one in many stores and it’s a little easier on the wallet.
