Watermelon, Cucumber and Mint Salad

watermelon cucumber and mint salad

Nothing screams summer more than watermelon and in this refreshing salad, I've combined it with hydrating cucumber and fresh mint, along with a zesty lime dressing. It's so simple but the quality of the seasonal ingredients means that it's a combination which tastes amazing, works well with many dishes and is unusual enough to make it an impressive dish to serve guests. Case in point, I served this at the recent Lunch & Learn event where it proved popular with all of the attendees. I can't wait to hear what you think.

Three great health benefits: boosts immunity, beneficial for digestive health, anti-inflammatory 

Serves 1 as a salad or 2 as a side dish
Enjoy immediately

Ingredients:
150g watermelon flesh, roughly chopped into cubes
1/2 cucumber (approx 125g), roughly chopped into cubes
Approximately 6 fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1/2 lime
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Method:
1) Mix together the watermelon, cucumber and mint in a bowl. Stir gently, taking care not to break up the delicate watermelon.
2) For the dressing, whisk together the olive oil and lime juice and season with salt & pepper. Drizzle over the salad to serve.
