Summer is here, and you know what that means, the arrival of fresh watermelons at your local markets and grocery stores. As the summer heat approaches, your daily water intake becomes more critical. Don’t become a victim of dehydration, increasing your water intake will help you through the hot days ahead.

Water can be found in several fruits and vegetables; watermelon being at the top of the list. It’s packed with electrolytes, sodium, and potassium—keeping you hydrated and healthy. Watermelon also contains Vitamin B, producing you with energy throughout the day. Incorporating watermelon into your summer meal plan is the easiest way to make sure you are getting all the benefits that watermelon has to offer.

Last year, I presented one of my favorite watermelon recipes, watermelon salsa, to the Park Duvall community—it was a hit. It’s easy to make and includes a variety of vegetables—making this a super salsa. The whole family will love the refreshing taste of watermelon salsa. Add to your taco meals or make it your summer snack with a side of tortilla chips.
