If you grew up in the South, then you know that watermelon and summertime go together like peanut butter and jelly! I don't know anyone in this world that loves watermelon more than my mother. During the summer, a cold watermelon could be her breakfast, lunch or dinner. Watermelon is incredibly healthy and packed with Vitamin A, B6 and Vitamin C. Two cups of watermelon is only 80 calories so it's a sweet treat that is friendly to your waistline. Remember, the best time to eat watermelon is between June and August so you have a few more weeks to enjoy it! Add this salad to your next BBQ and let me know how it turns out!
