Spicy Asian Watermelon Salad in bowlPacked with nuts, avocados, tomatoes and watermelon, this dish is loaded with great textures. It's also full of vitamins and healthy fats. I didn't use an oil in the dressing because of the balance you get from the cashews and avocado. This savoury and spicy twist on a melon salad makes a great side for any meal. Give it a try!

  • 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 inch block of ginger
