Even though summer is ending, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a delicious and refreshing salad. During the summer I usually have a constant craving for fresh fruit and this salad hit just the right spot. It’s satisfyingly refreshing but won’t leave you feeling hungry (hopefully!).
Some people think that salads are boring and I just don’t understand that. There’s a lot more to salads than just leaves, by adding a variety of delicious and healthy ingredients you can create thousands of different flavours and textures that all taste lovely. So the moral of this story is be creative because you never know what you’ll create next!
No fancy ingredients needed, just add whatever you have available in the fridge. But I’ll list down what I used just in case you want to recreate this amazingness.
1/4 red watermelon cut up into little chunks
1/4 yellow watermelon (I don’t know if there’s a proper name, sorry) also cut into chunks
a handful of micro greens – use whichever ones you have available
1/2 cucumber sliced up into bite sized pieces
extra virgin olive oil
place the watermelon, cucumber and micro greens into a bowl
top it with some freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt for a little unexpected saltiness and some olive oil
stir and top it with some seeds if you want
