What A Melon! Watermelon's The Pick Of The Season
(NAPSA) - For many people, watermelon is a taste worth waiting for-and this giant melon is big on nutrition, too. It's a satisfying, nutritious treat that's a terrific source of vitamins A and C, and chock-full of the antioxidant lycopene.
To promote the nutritional benefits of fresh produce, Weight Watchers is continuing Pick of the Season, a public health initiative spotlighting seasonal fruit and vegetables. Currently, it's watermelon, a produce selection that is as delicious as it is mouthwatering.
Want to be sure that fresh-picked melon stays delicious from first bite until the last? Here are some tips to help:
- Wash melon under running water and pat dry, then place on a clean cutting surface. (Handle gently to keep it from bruising.)
- Using a clean knife, slice melon into wedges, or cut the flesh from the rind into 1" cubes.
- Place cut melon in a covered container or wrap securely with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Delectable flavor will keep for up to three to four days-if it's around that long!
