Watermelon, grilled tomato and coriander salad


Watermelon and feta are a classic combination. Here we've added charred tomatoes to add a great smoky, savoury flavour. Chill the watermelon for maximum crunch.

You'll need

400 gm cherry tomatoes 2 tbsp olive oil 1.2 kg watermelon, cut into thin wedges 250 gm feta, coarsely crumbled 1 cup (loosely packed) mint 1 cup (loosely packed) coriander ½ Spanish onion, thinly sliced 1 long green chilli, thinly sliced   Coriander and lemon dressing ½ tsp cumin seeds ½ tsp coriander seeds 1 cup (loosely packed) coriander ½ cup (loosely packed) mint 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 lemon, juiced and rind finely grated 80 ml (1/3 cup) olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For dressing, dry-roast cumin and coriander seeds until fragrant (30 seconds), then coarsely crush with a mortar and pestle. Pulse coriander, mint, garlic and lemon rind and juice in a food processor until combined, add oil and spices, and pulse to combine.
  • 02
  • Heat a char-grill pan over medium-high heat. Toss cherry tomatoes in a bowl with oil to coat, season to taste, then grill, turning occasionally, until blistered (1-2 minutes). Transfer to a bowl with 2 tbsp dressing, toss to coat and set aside.
  • 03
  • Arrange watermelon in a bowl or on a serving platter, spoon over tomatoes, scatter with feta, herbs, onion and chilli, drizzle with remaining dressing and serve.
