Super Refreshing Watermelon Salad

Super Refershing Watermelon SaladMy husband’s favorite fruit is watermelon. Give him just watermelon for all three meals, he will happily chomp on it without any fuss. So today, I thought of making this fresh, bright and full of flavor salad. This salad is sweet, tangy and tart and if you are looking for a bright, feel good salad this weekend, this is the salad for you…… made with lots of love…

This is my tenth salad in the#husbandkadabba series

Ingredients

For the salad:

  • 1/4 cup tofu, lightly sauteed and seasoned with  with black pepper
  • 1/2 medium sized onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 cup watermelon chunks
  • 4-5 black olives, thinly sliced
  • A handful of toasted pistachio

For the dressing: Watermelon Lime Vinaigrette

To make the dressing for this salad, whisk together all the dressing ingredients in a food processor and adjust salt and pepper to your taste:

  • 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 5-6 chunks of watermelon
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • A dash of mustard
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tsp fresh coriander leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method:

To transfer all the prepped ingredients into the jar, first pour in the watermelon lime vinaigrette dressing and let it settle at the bottom of the jar. Now layer with tofu, thinly sliced onions, diced cucumber, watermelon chunks and olives

Finish off the jar with toasted nuts of your choice, I have used pistachio.

Have a great weekend… I will be back with more dabba ideas next week..
