Beat the heat with this light, juicy, and amazingly refreshing watermelon salad drizzled with a sweet, tart and fruity fig balsamic vinegar syrup. You can crumble over some feta to add a savoury bite and chopped pistachios for an added crunch to this fruit salad.

Cherry, Raspberry and Watermelon salad with Fig Balsamic Syrup

adapted from taste
  • 200 g Fresh cherries, halved, stones removed
  • 1 Small seedless watermelon
  • 120 g Fresh raspberries
  • Lemon balm or mint leaves
  • Fig balsamic syrup
  1. Use a large sharp knife to cut the watermelon into 1cm-thick slices. Use 3cm, 6cm and 8cm star-shaped pastry cutters to cut shapes from the watermelon.
  2. Arrange the watermelon, cherries, raspberries and lemon balm leaves on a serving platter. Drizzle the syrup over and serve immediately.

What a coincidence, I have a watermelon, shrimp and feta salad on the menu for this weekend at the cottage. It's very hot and humid here in Toronto so a salad that is light and sweet is perfect for a light lunch or supper.
