MACRO-FRIENDLY CHILI-LIME WATERMELON SALAD
With the Fourth of July only a few days away and the guarantee of a party or two this week, we wanted to make sure to share one of our favorite macro-friendly side dishes that’s quick to prepare and is yummy, even for those who don’t track macros! Inspired by a watermelon and basil salad I had a few weeks ago, I played around with some additional ingredients to make a simple, patriotic side dish with a kick. Enjoy!
