Rucola or arugula salad with watermelon and toast sunflower seeds

27 Jul

It is already weekend and maybe it´s all right for you get into the kitchen, but you´d prefer spend less time than you usually spend. Because of this, today I want to share a salad recipe, a very easy and fast recipe you´ll be able to prepare in a few minutes and enjoy as well. I won’t extend in a long article this once, just mention that here in Spain, during this portion of the hemisphere’s summer time, we have melon and watermelon everywhere. It is now when these fruits are much tastier and in their best moment to consume.

In the majority of bar and restaurant menus in the Iberian Peninsula it is prepare a tasty typical dish, melon with Serrano (Iberian) ham, that you should try if you come here to visit these lands. High water content and just few sugars, the watermelon (today protagonist) is ideal to include on a weight loss or weight control diet; it´s ideal as well in order to introduce more fruits and vegetables into a healthy life´s style. Watermelons are natural source of vitamin C and Lycopene, this last one, we already know its remarkable role in the fight against cancer.
