So, on the hottest day ever, or something like that, here’s a truly simple salad to help you through the heat! I always like to keep a melon in the fridge in hot weather, as a slice is like an ice pop and perfect for a cooling afternoon snack! Chilled melon is perfect for this salad, which is delicious as a side salad, a starter or just with fresh crunchy bread if you want something light.
Watercress and Melon Salad with Caraway Seeds
1 handful of watercress, washed
1 handful of lambs lettuce, washed
1 quarter galia melon, chilled
1 tblsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp caraway seeds
Peel the melon and cut into small chunks. Add the watercress, lambs lettuce and melon to a bowl. Add the lemon juice and toss the salad. Sprinkle the caraway seeds over the salad and serve cool.
