Watermelon Salad

by

As the weather heats up nothing says refreshing like watermelon.  I love this recipe as an accompaniment to BBQ or a spicy curry. And if you’re making Mexican, just swap out the mint for coriander and the chillies for a sprinkle of chipotle pepper.  No matter your cuisine of choice, this salad is super easy and has just the right balance of sweetness and zing!

Ingredients:

  • 8 cups of seedless watermelon diced into 2cm cubes
  • ¼ cup of fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup of chopped mint leaves
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons of thinly sliced green chilli (seeds removed)

Method:

  1. Toss the first three ingredients together in a bowl and then sprinkle with sea salt. 
  2.  Add some cracked black pepper and the chilli (depending on the preferences of the kids at the table) and stir.
  3. Enjoy!
