Instead of Tomato Salsa, Opt for Watermelon Salsa
In addition to quenching thirst― watermelon is 92 percent water―it provides hefty doses of vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium,
and lycopene (a disease-fighting antioxidant found in red fruits and vegetables). One cup of watermelon contains more of both
lycopene and beta-carotene than a medium-sized tomato. Learn more with our All About Melons guide.
Mix ¼ cup lime juice, 1 tablespoon honey, ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, and ⅛ teaspoon salt in a bowl. Add 3 cups diced seeded melon (use any ripe melon or combination of melons you like), 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, and 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced. Toss gently to combine; cover and chill until ready to serve.
