Ingredients

For the dressing:

  • Zest of a lime
  • 1/4 cup of lime juice freshly squeezed (from 4-5 small limes)
  • 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For the watermelon salad:

  • 1/2 cup fine bulgur
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 cups of seedless watermelon scooped using a melon baller or cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
  • 2 medium size cucumbers peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • Flaky salt for finishing

Instructions

  • To make the dressing: Place lime zest, juice, olive oil, honey, and salt and pepper in a jar. Put the lid on and shake until they are all combined. Place it in the fridge while you are prepping the salad ingredients.
  • To make the salad: Place bulgur and salt in a heatproof bowl. Pour the boiling water over bulgur. Let is sit on the counter until all of the water is absorbed by bulgur. This should take no more than 10 minutes.
  • Place the watermelon balls (or cubes), chopped mint, sliced cucumbers and feta cheese in a large salad bowl. Add in the now-cooked bulgur and give it a gentle stir. Drizzle it with the dressing.
  • When ready to serve, finish each portion with a pinch of flaky salt (like Maldon salt).
