Watermelon and Halloumi with Mint and Balsamic Glaze

Watermelons are made up of several functional ingredients, such as citrulline, lycopene, and chlorophyll. These ingredients are known to have health benefits such as lower blood pressure, improve metabolic health, and reduce muscle soreness after exercise. Watermelons are also packed with water and nutrients, contain very few calories and are exceptionally refreshing. An all time favourite that gets everyone exited, have you ever considered using watermelon as a hero ingredient in a dish? Watermelon pairs well with sweet and savoury flavours.
