Ingredients

For the salad

  • 1 small watermelon, chopped into thin slices
  • 1 large cucumber, halved lengthways, deseeded and sliced diagonally into half moons
  • 200g feta, crumbled
  • Small bunch fresh mint, leaves picked and roughly chopped
  • Small bunch fresh coriander, leaves picked and roughly chopped
  • Small bunch fresh basil, leaves picked and roughly chopped
  • 2 handfuls salted roasted peanuts, roughly chopped

For the dressing

  • 2 tbsp chilli jam (we used Tracklements)
  • Finely grated zest 1 lime and juice 2
  • 4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  1. Toss all the salad ingredients together in a large bowl, reserving a few of the peanuts to scatter later.
  2. To make the dressing, combine the chilli jam, lime zest and juice and the olive oil in a small bowl or jug, then taste and season.
  3. Toss most of the dressing through the salad, then transfer to a large serving platter. Scatter over the reserved peanuts, then drizzle over the rest of the dressing. Leave the salad to sit for a couple of minutes to absorb the flavours, then serve.
