A fruit in a salad you say? What tomfoolery is this? Watermelon contains citrulline, which boosts blood flow and post-workout recovery. Plus, it’s downright delicious.
200g radishes, topped and tailed • 4 handfuls of kale •
½ red onion • 2 handfuls of
basil • 2 handfuls of mint • 1cm cube of fresh ginger, peeled • drizzle of olive oil • 200g watermelon, cubed • pinch of sea salt
1. Pulse the radishes and kale in a food processor until they’re chopped into chunks (you’ll be a pro at this by now), then scoop them out into a bowl.
2. Repeat the same process with the onion and herbs, then add them to the bowl.
3. Grate the ginger over the vegetables (or chop into tiny pieces by hand if you prefer) and stir it in.
4. Mix the ingredients together and drizzle with olive oil, then stir through the watermelon and season with salt. A sight for slaw eyes. Super Slaw: Blitz Your Way To 5 A Day by Jill Greenwood (£12.99, Ebury)
