Watermelon Cucumber and Goat Cheese Salad

Watermelon is at its best this time of year. With a sweet, natural flavour, it’s like nature’s candy!  To pick the best tasting melon, the watermelon should feel heavy for its size. Look for the yellow creamy spot on one end, which means it’s ripe.

1. On a serving plate, add watermelon and cucumber. Garnish with onions, mint, cashews and goat cheese.
2. In a bowl, mix oil, juice and salt and pepper. Pour over salad and toss gently.

½ cup thinly sliced red onions
¼ cup chopped mint or basil
3 Tbsp toasted chopped cashews
1 oz crumbled goat cheese
2 Tbsp olive oil

Salt and pepper

Serves 4
