Watermelon Mint Salad

Is there a better way to cool down and stay hydrated this summer while enjoying a seasonal watermelon? This isn’t just any boring old salad, either — it’s a great side dish that will surely be a crowd-pleaser at your next family potluck. An interesting fact you can tell your friends and family while they enjoy this salad is this: watermelon seeds shouldn’t be spat out! They are a rich source of proteins, vitamins, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, magnesium, zinc, copper, potassium and more. These calories from the seeds can add up though, so you need to be mindful of your portions.
