This salad will change your mind about using watermelon in savoury ways

Goodness, how good watermelon is in the Summer. But we rarely use it in a savoury way. Rather, the mind brings images of slurping great arcs of watermelon at the beach, the juice running down your chin and arms.

But watermelon accepts acidic ingredients very well – limes, lemons, salt etc. And therefore making salads with it for those 45C days of Australian Summers is a perfect solution to the heat. Along with a Gin and Tonic, of course.

Watermelon and Peach Salad with Basil

Take some watermelon and cut into cubes. Dice a peach, and mix gently through the watermelon. Dress with a basic vinaigrette and add some torn basil leaves. Another gentle toss and you are done.

Basically, watermelon, peaches and tomatoes go well together. So you can make this a tomato and peach salad or a tomato and watermelon salad as well.

I added some chaat masala to my salad as it brings out the flavours of fruits delightfully.

Add some Mediterranean white cheese if you like – haloumi or feta, for example.
