Vibrant Summer Salad with Watermelon and Cherry Tomatoes

Vibrant Method “Approved Recipe” sourced from Healthy Mind Cookbook.

This salad has always been a crowd favorite at outdoor cookouts with friends. Both watermelon and tomatoes are loaded with lycopene, a well-known antioxidant that protects the brain’s high fat content. Lycopene may also play a role in the growth of the brain. A little lime juice and cilantro provide a nice zesty note for this dish, playing well off the slightly briny creaminess of the feta cheese.
