One of the best natural thirst quenchers for a scorching hot summer day, watermelon are very low in calories and high in anti-oxidants. They are also an excellent source of vitamin A and contain significant amounts of vitamin C, thiamin, manganese and potassium.
Store watermelon in a cool, well-ventilated area. Before cutting into it, wash the outside under cold running water to remove any surface dirt. It can be sliced, cubed, or scooped into balls. Add to fruit salads for a quick and refreshing dessert. Store wrapped cut sections in the refrigerator.
