Watermelon is fresh and a very hydrating fruit.

Fresh mint is a proven digestive aid and pomegranate contains ellagic acid which has been shown to be beneficial to cell health.

This is a recipe from the Maggie´s book I told you before. I added a balsamic vinegar reduction to it and it worked out perfectly!

You can both have it as a light main meal or as a side, a good combination for a summer meat barbecue!

INGREDIENTS

for 2 portions

  • 2 good slices of a large watermelon or 1/2 a small watermelon
  • 100 g feta cheese
  • 1 pomegranate 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • bunch of mint leaves

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Peel and cut the watermelon into cubes and take off the seeds.
  • Roughly chop the feta cheese and then peel and de-seed the pomegranate.
  • In a saucepan add the balsamic vinegar and bring it to boil. Once boiling reduce the heat and let it simmer and reduce until you obtain a thick consistency. 
  • Mix the watermelon, the feta and the pomegranate in a bowl and toss with the olive oil and the reduced balsamic. Sprinkle the chopped mint leaves on top.
  • You can either serve it all in a bowl or make small individual bowls.
