Cooking with Cancer: Holly Clegg’s Easy Watermelon Tomato Salad

Nothing is better than a ripe, juicy watermelon. Eating Well Through Cancer author, Holly Clegg, shared her go-to summer salad recipe with us. Complete with fresh tomatoes, basil, and watermelon, this salad is light, simple, and packed with antioxidants.

Water accounts for over 90% of watermelon’s weight, but this fruit is rich in potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin C. It’s also an incredible source of lycopene, an antioxidant known to help reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers.
