When I think about summer, watermelon is definitely one of those summer season foods I enjoy. Cooling and hydrating, some days I just can’t get enough.
This salad is loaded with iron from both spinach and pumpkin seeds. Vitamin C in the watermelon helps your body absorb the iron. Persian Lime infused oil and Jalapeno Lime Balsamic vinegar gives a wonderful flavor to this tasty salad.
I received this oil and vinegar from The Olive Taste of Delray Beach to create a couple of recipes featuring their product. Owner Lori Richards brings in high quality oil and vinegar from around the world. You can taste and feel the difference, your body will thank you when you enjoy a meal using her products.
