RE­COV­ERY AID­ING

Women's Health (UK) - - EAT SMART -

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.

IN­GRE­DI­ENTS

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

METHOD

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)
