Recipe of the Month: Tomato & Watermelon Salad

For best tasting salad be sure to use those fresh local farmer’s market organic tomatoes and watermelons!

Use Food as Medicine! Watermelon and tomatoes are both abundant sources of lycopene, which has been found to be protective against cancer of the prostate, breast, lung and colon. See below for Dr. Weil’s recipe.

Ingredients:

2 organic watermelons, peeled & cut into chunks
8 organic local heirloom tomatoes (various colors and sizes), cut up
24 mint or basil leaves
2 tablespoons red onion, sliced paper-thin
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
Feta cheese or goat cheese, optional
Coarse sea salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
