This salad is light and refreshing – you will love this! When Melons are in season it is great to mix them up and this recipe does just that.
A little bit of “Healthy”, undamaged, saturated fat from the cream adds to a sense of fullness and helps to balance your blood sugars. This salad contains plenty of fluid, fiber, enzymes and antioxidants too. Plus the cinnamon is a wonderful circulatory herb, blood sugar stabilizer and is proven to lower cholesterol.
It is great for lunch or dinner.

Scientists have taken notice of watermelon’s high lycopene levels. Approximately 20 milligrams per 2-cup serving. This is of the highest levels found in fresh produce. Lycopene is a phytonutrient that has been shown to reduce prostate enlargement and has powerful antioxidant properties.
