How was your holiday weekend? We had a great weekend celebrating our anniversary and enjoying an extra day together yesterday for Memorial Day. One thing is for sure, we had a cheat weekend, indulging in whatever we wanted in the food department. Did anyone else out there have a weekend filled with burgers and ice cream? Well we did, and today we are back to eating healthy, trying to make up for our glutenous past couple of days. If you are attempting to do the same, I have the perfect healthy salad to get you going in the right direction. My watermelon, cucumber, and mint salad is light, flavorful, and is super good for your body, especially coming off of a long weekend.
Memorial Day in my mind kick starts summer. I immediately start thinking about watermelons and ice cream cones on a hot day. And since I do not need to be eating ice cream cones every day, watermelon is my next favorite summertime treat.
I would eat this salad even if I wasn't trying to be healthy because the flavors are great together. That, and I happen to be a watermelon addict at the moment, (or the baby is) but regardless I can eat watermelon all day everyday right now. What I love about this combination is that all of the ingredients are great for flushing toxins from your body and are super hydrating, and I KNOW some of you might need a little hydration after your day out in the sun yesterday. Am I right? ;)
This salad is gorgeous with minimal ingredients making it super easy for you to whip up all summer long. Do your body a favor and serve yourself a plate of this salad!
