Summer Delight: Refreshing Watermelon Salad

Watermelon makes for a great fruit for summer.

It’s absolutely sweet, refreshing and amazingly hydrating. It can work wonders to survive the relentless summer sun.

Watermelon is mostly water, about 92 percent. But the fruit is soaked with loads of nutrients. It is highly rich in vitamins A, B6 and C. In addition to all this essential summer snack is fat-free.

It can be consumed as a juice and in slices. Apart from this watermelon can be eaten up as salad by adding various flavorings to it in the form of mint, cucumber, strawberry.

Now addition of all these ingredients makes it all the more healthy.

This salad is so easy to make and so refreshing on a hot summer day. Here’s my healthy recipe for watermelon salad.
