Packed 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!

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 6 servings


  • 1 small watermelon (or half a large one), cubed
  • 1/2 a bunch of fresh mint, torn
  • 3 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 1/2 cup cashews, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced (1/2 if you want it milder)
  • 1/2 tsp black sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp white sesame seeds
  • 1 small lime
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 inch block of ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic


  1. In a bowl, mix together the watermelon, mint, tomatoes, avocado, cashews, jalapeno, and sesame seeds.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, lime juice, and vinegar. Grate in the ginger and garlic. Drizzle over salad and mix well.
