Watermelon Salad

Watermelon Salad (Serves 2-3)

  • lettuce
  • 6 cups watermelon, diced
  • 1 large English cucumber, thinly sliced 
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup basil, torn or sliced
  • 1 large or 2 small limes, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup


  • 1 Jalapeno, fine dice
  • black pepper to taste

Slice the watermelon into 1-inch-thick rounds, remove the rind and cut into cubes.

Slice the English cucumber into thin rounds, about ⅛ inch thick.

Combine the watermelon, cucumber, strawberries and pumpkin seeds in a large salad bowl and stir.

Tear or slice the basil into small pieces and add to the salad bowl.

In a small bowl, juice the lime and mix with the maple syrup.

Pour on top of the salad bowl and mix well.

Serve immediately on a bed of lettuce topped with pepper (if using it), or store in the fridge until you're ready to enjoy.
