Juicy Watermelon Salad Recipe

Barbeque season is in full swing and nothing screams summer like watermelon! Watermelon is 92% water, making it a hydrating, low calorie treat.  One cup contains about 20% of your daily needs of Vitamin A and C to support a healthy immune system and supple skin. In addition, one cup provides 170 milligrams of bloat-banishing potassium, and a whopping dose of the antioxidant lycopene which may protect against diseases such as cancer, Macular Degeneration, and cardiovascular disease.  Dig into summer with a Juicy Watermelon Salad!
