On these hot summer August days, all I want for lunch is a cool, crisp salad. I also love the savory-sweet pairing achieved by topping my greens with fruit.
Watermelon is 92% water and a good source of potassium, so it’s super hydrating. Plus it’s only 40 calories per cup. It is also high in antioxidants (including Vitamin C), Vitamin A, and beta carotene which are all great for your skin. Walnuts are a great source of Omega 3s which are heart-healthy, anti-inflammatory and also have skin benefits. A little bit of feta goes a long way to pack a flavor punch and adds calcium and protein. And of course the greens are always a must. Give this refreshing combo a try and let me know what you think. Stay cool and enjoy!
