Tomato Watermelon Salad
It sounds odd adding salt, pepper, vinegar and oil to watermelon, but it is quite tasty!  
Watermelon is full of the anti-oxidant Lycopene to help protect our skin from the UV sun rays and fight damaging free radicals. Watermelon is 92% water to replenish the fluids our skin needs. It also provides Vitamins C, A and B6 as well as potassium and magnesium.

    6 cups mixed greens
    5 cups seeded watermelon, cubed
    1 1/2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
    1/2 cup onion, thinly sliced
    3 teaspoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup red wine vinegar
    1/4 cup olive oil
    pepper to taste

Combine watermelon and tomatoes in a bowl. Sprinkle with sugar and salt. Toss to coat and let stand for 15 minutes. Stir in onions, oil and vinegar. Chill for 2 hours. Pour mixture over mixed greens. Season with pepper.




Have a Beautiful Day!
