Enjoy a tea cup salad !

 Watermelon salad in a tea-cup


Well, as regular readers will know, I do like my cup of tea, but how about this!

Watermelon salad in a tea-cup ... that's different.

Certified Holistic Health Coach Lee Holmes writes:
"This dainty salad is a gorgeous, refreshing snack, light meal or post-meal enjoyment that will provide instant refreshment as well as a welcomed hit of hydration and nutrients. Watermelons are mostly water — about 92 percent — but every juicy bite has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, as well as lycopene and beauty-boosting antioxidants that help keep your complexion glowing all summer long...

Ingredients
Serves 3
350 g (12 oz/2 cups) diced seedless watermelon
90 g (31/4 oz/2 cups) baby English spinach leaves
Small handful of mint leaves, torn or roughly chopped
1 large celery stalk, thinly sliced
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
60 g (21/4 oz/ 1/2 cup) crumbled goat’s cheese

Dressing
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp lime juice
Handful of coriander (cilantro) leaves, chopped
130 g (41/2 oz/ 1/2 cup) sheep’s milk yogurt
Celtic sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Method
Whisk all the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl, then divide between three wide-mouthed teacups, mugs or bowls. Spoon the dressing on top and serve immediately.

Supercharged tip
Keep the salad and dressing separate until just before serving, then when you’re ready to eat spoon the dressing on top."

That's a lovely idea, though I'd need to change the ingredients as I'm allergic to melons

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

We are huge fans of watermelon especially now that we are not eating ice cream very much (personal choice). Our favorite way to enjoy is cut up and chilled.

Jeanie said...

That would be a really fun idea for a party! I'm going to remember that one.

I went to lunch the other day and we had soup served in a teacup. Now your salad. I think the world is trying to tell me something-but I don't know what. This is a great summer post. Hope it isn't too hot and you're having a nice weekend.

Bella l'idea di gustare questa "tazza" di insalata.
Non riesco bene a capire come l'anguria si sposi con gli altri ingredienti a livello di gusto, perΓ² mi piacerebbe provare.
