Ingredients:
Half a watermelon
100g whole pistachios
1 slab feta cheese, cut into small chunks
1 cucumber, cut into small chunks
A large handful of fresh mint
A large handful of fresh basil
A few drops of olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
Seeds of 1 pomegranate

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees
2. Cut the inside of your watermelon into square chunks – remove these and put aside. If using the watermelon as your serving dish, scrape any remaining watermelon out with a spoon and remove the juice. Too much will make your salad watery.

4. Finely chop the mint with the basil, mix with the olive oil and lime juice.
5. Fill the watermelon (or a bowl if preferred) with all the ingredients evenly dispersed.
