This watermelon salad is one I like to make on a hot, sunny day when I know we’re not going to want to eat too much, but will still want something. It’s sweet, salty, peppery, tangy and just all round delicious. Serves 2.
- 1 x 100g bag of rocket
- 200g watermelon
- 10 strawberries
- 40g feta
- 50ml balsamic reduction (or 100ml balsamic vinegar)
- 1 small handful of mixed seeds (pumpkin, sesame, sunflower – whatever makes you happy)
Double check if you need to wash any of the ingredients, and do so if need be.
Make the balsamic reduction – put your balsamic vinegar in a pan on a medium heat and let it start to boil and reduce down until it’s about half of the original volume.
Chop the watermelon into bite-sized pieces. Half or quarter the strawberries, depending on how large they are.
Add the lettuce to your serving dish, top with the strawberries, seeds and watermelon. Mix well. Crumble the feta on top. Drizzle over the balsamic glaze.
Serve immediately – a glass of wine on the side is optional!
