Whole Pantry~Watermelon & Avocado Salad

I love this recipe in the summer months when I do everything I can to stay hydrated.
Watermelon is high in vitamin C and potassium which makes this combination great at easing inflammation.
We often have dinner at the beach in the summer and this is one of our go-to recipes. I love the pairing of avocado and Haloumi (goat’s cheese) with the watermelon. There is a touch of salt to the cheese which adds a wonderful depth of flavor. The avocado’s texture melts in your mouth and gives the salad a rich, luscious fullness.

Experience it for yourself, it is easy to make and sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Ingredients:

1-3/4 pound (approx 1/8 of a whole watermelon

1/2 large avocado, thinly sliced

2 teaspoons sunflowers seed

1 lime, juiced

1/3 cup basil leaves

1/2 tablespoon olive or macadamia oil

sea salt and cracked pepper to taste

2 ounces of Haloumi cheese, thinly sliced

Assembling the Salad:

  1. Slice watermelon in thin slices.
  2. Layer watermelon and avocado on plates sprinkle sunflower seeds and torn basil leaves.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Squeeze fresh lime juice and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. In a hot pan, cook Haloumi cheese for 1-2 minutes on each side until lightly brown.
