The best summer salad

My festive season gift to you: the best ever summer salad courtesy of the one and only Matt Preston. It's fresh, healthy, delicious and super easy - what's better than that?

I don't really work with quantities and just judge it by eye, so here's my version:

Watermelon salad

Mint leaves
Sunflower seeds
Pumpkin seeds

Cut the skinned watermelon into chunks, removing the the seeds (otherwise you mistake them for pumpkin seeds and get a nasty surprise!) and throw into a big bowl. I like cucumber skin and it adds great colour, but I guess you could peel the cucumber if you prefer. Cut into chunks and add to the watermelon. Toss in the mint, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, sprinkling diced feta cubes on top. Matty P adds a drizzle of lime juice, but I always forget that bit and don't find that I miss it. Toss until it looks pretty and you're done! You're welcome :)
