Watermelons are Wonderful ….

“When one has tasted watermelon he knows what the angels eat.”

Mark Twain

I love watermelon…it’s fruity, refreshing, mouth-watering and it’s good for you! 

Watermelon is not just all sugar, sweetness and water:

  • It’s full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and is low in calorie.
  • Eat it for breakfast; it’s great for the digestive system.
  • It’s perfect for that healthy mid-day snack.
  • Summer salads would not be the same with out it.
  • Why not try grilling it on the BBQ?
  • Fancy a watermelon mojito or an alcohol-free punch?

Watermelon is just so versatile!

I have been inspired by the many recipes to be found here on WordPress and on Pinterest. In fact, everywhere I look, all my favourite food channels and websites are singing the praises of this amazing food source.

This week I have put together some of my favourite flavours and textures and decided to enjoy some seasonal salads.

  • Avocado
  • Coriander
  • Black olives
  • Feta cheese
  • Lime
  • Tomatoes
  • Walnuts
  • Watermelon

This is an anything goes recipe.  Just chop up anything you fancy: parma ham, pine nuts, then add a dash of basil infused oil, and season to taste. So simple, so good….

It’s colourful, satisfying and well balanced.

I guarantee you will feel angelic after eating this watermelon medley of summer sunshine!
