Summer Spotlight: Watermelon & Heirloom Tomatoes

This summer, we’re putting a spotlight on two of the season’s best ingredients: watermelon and heirloom tomatoes.

Do you ever wonder what gives these luscious fruit (yes, fruit!) their vibrant red color? The bright red color comes from a natural pigment called lycopene, which is rich with antioxidants and known to help heart health. Plus, lycopenes build the skin’s defense against the sun.

Try the Sandia or Elote salads to take advantage of the health benefits that these bright red fruit have to offer!
