Healthy, Quick & Easy College Cookbook: Watermelon Salsa

A sweet and spicy salsa game changer!

Not only is watermelon super hydrating, it’s rich in lycopene – that beautiful red antioxidant that promotes healthy skin and blood pressure. Serve with chips or atop tacos and quesadillas. One of my favorite recipes from The Healthy, Quick & Easy College Cookbook. Cut the watermelon and cucumber into evenly sized pieces to ensure you get both in every bite.
