Watermelon and Avocado Salad











This is me thumbing my nose at winter.



Watermelon and Avocado Salad
from Annabel Langbein's Simple Pleasures
Serves 4

Halft a large seedless watermelon, cut into bite-size chunks
2 just ripe avocados, sliced
200g fresh mozzarella, torn into bite-size pieces
Juice and finely grated zest of two limes
1 red long red chilli, finely chopped
Sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper
Handful of basil leaves, torn
Lime halves

Put the watermelon chunks, avocado slices and torn mozzarella into a large salad bowl and toss gently to mix. Sprinkle the lime juice and zest over, along with the chilli and season with salt and pepper. Turn everything over again to mix and then strew with torn basil leaves and some lime halves.

  1. I like how you thumb your nose. Winter needs to be put in it's place every now and again. :) This salad would definitely do it. Love those flavors, but never had them together!
