  • Nutrition Tip

    The tomatoes and watermelon in this recipe are rich in a phytochemical called lycopene, which give these fruits their red/pink color. Phytochemicals, or phytonutrients, provide plants with natural protection against disease, sun damage, fungus, and bugs. Many of these naturally-occurring nutrients can also benefit people by reducing disease risk and supporting immunity.
