LEADERBRAND WATERMELON & CHILLI SALAD WITH LIME DRESSING RECIPE LEADERBRAND WATERMELON & CHILLI SALAD WITH LIME DRESSING RECIPE

Watermelon & chilli salad with lime dressing

Directions

Remove the Watermelon from the fridge. Cut in half and reserve one half for eating. Cut the other half into slices and trim away the rind. Cut the pieces into smaller bite sized pieces. Place pieces on a plate and keep chilled. 

Prepare the other vegetables. Slice the radishes and refresh in ice cold water to crispen up. 

Arrange the contents of the Continental or Crispy Salad, or whatever salad greens being used on a large serving platter. Arrange the slices of watermelon, radishes and jalapeno chillies over the top.  

Whisk together the ingredients for the lime dressing in a small bowl. Drizzle over one third of the dressing coating the watermelon. Toss to coat the leaves and watermelon. Garnish with extra chillies, mint leaves and chill for 10-15 minutes before serving to allow the dressing to soak in.  

Serve with extra dressing on the side. 

Variation:

Any salad greens from the Leaaderbrand range can be used in this salad. For less spice substitute the jalapeno with marinated artichokes or green olives.
