Put down the Gatorade and Vitamin Water! We’ve concocted a natural fruit and veggie salad that’s loaded with vitamins A and C and a lot of water to keep us hydrated all day long, at camp or playing outside. The lime, rich in citric acid, helps keep this super salad fresh for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
½ medium honeydew melon, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks ½ medium cantaloupe, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks ½ small seedless cucumber, unpeeled and cut into 1-inch chunks Juice from 1 lime 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
In large bowl, combine melons and cucumber. Add lime juice and salt and toss to mix well.
Serve in bowls or large cups to go.
