If you’re interested in preparing a fresh and healthy lunchtime meal, look no further than a delicious summer salad. These are great options for lunch and dinner since they are packed with good fats, but also boast plenty of natural vitamins and minerals. Not only do salads take a short time to prepare, but they can be packed and eaten on-the-go, and at any time.
4 cups cut watermelon (into small cubes)
1 ripe avocado, cut into small pieces
½ red onion, thinly sliced
½ cup fresh mint
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
½ cup crumbled feta cheese
- Grab a large bowl, and place the watermelon, avocado and red onion slices into it. Don’t forget to add the mint for a fresh taste of flavour as well.
- Prepare the dressing by whisking the olive oil, lime juice and some salt and pepper for seasoning. The dressing should be mixed thoroughly before drizzled carefully over the salad.
- Gently stir the entire salad, and then pop it into the fridge for about an hour. This will allow all of the different flavours to infuse the rest of the salad.
- When the salad is ready to be served, sprinkle the feta cheese over the top of the watermelon. This will ensure that the feta won’t melt and become greasy.
