Watermelons

WATERMELON

Ahhh the taste of summer. Watermelon should not sit on your counter for long, as the taste does not continue to develop after harvest. Our watermelons all have seeds so be careful when eating (and no...a watermelon won't start growing in your belly if your eat a seed:). They are full of beta carotene and lycopenes, too 
 
QUICK IDEAS: devour as soon as you get home; make a salad with some fresh mint
Watermelon Salsa:
inspired by Southern Living

2 cups watermelon, cubed

1/4 cup kalamata olives, pitted and chopped to desired size

1/2 cucumber, chopped

1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced

2 tablespoons onions, minced

2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

 

Directions

1) De-seed and chop watermelon into cubes.

2) Combine with the rest of the ingredients and serve. (Goes well with fish)
