Watermelon Salad

  2. Cut the watermelon into 2cm cubes and add to the bowl
  3. Cut the cucumber length-ways and use a spoon to remove the watery seeds then slice thickly. Add to the watermelon.
  4. Stack all the mint leaves on top of one another, roll them into a cigar and use your sharpest knife to cut them into thin strands. Add them too.
  5. Toss the bowl to coat everything in the dressing.
