Watermelon is so refreshing!

One way to stay cool and hydrated during the summer months is eating a refreshing watermelon, feta cheese, and arugula salad. This sweet and savory food combination blends very nicely together. I was surprised how a simple and nutritious salad dish can be so delish! 

Here's a fun fruit fact: 

Watermelons are native to Africa and were an important souce of liquid with a 92% high water content. This juicy fruit is packed with nutrients for healthy eyes, glowing skin, and a robust immune system.
