Three ingredient summer melon salad

Recommended Posts


There are a lot of wonderful things about summer that make it easier to stick to a healthy lifestyle: The nicer weather makes heading outside for a walk, bike ride or swim more tempting; fresh veggies are abundant and affordable at roadside stands and farmers’ markets; and dessert is easier (and healthier) than ever thanks to the availability of ripe, fresh, sweet fruit!

Of course, there’s room in our diets for the occasional piece of pie or fudgy brownie, but for a healthy everyday treat, you can’t beat fresh fruit. And summer is the time to really get your fill! We absolutely love fresh summer melons because they’re not only super tasty and naturally sweet, but they are packed with water and tons of nutrients (not to mention, bright and beautiful to the eye!).

Watermelon slices are great for a quick and easy weeknight dessert for your family, but here’s a way to elevate your fruit and its appearance for something a little more special. This super simple, three-ingredient summer melon salad still comes together in a flash. And you’ll be amazed at how melons taste even fresher and tastier with a little bit of lemon zest. It’s the perfect way to celebrate summer!
