A post with a bit of a bit of a difference today. After weighing myself for the first time in about 6 years the other day and almost having a seizure, I’ve made the decision to try and eat a bit healthier…. I don’t generally eat that much or that bad as it is, but something needs to be done I tell thee. My half hearted attempt of ‘cutting down’ is going to lose me a stone in a month (or so I can fool myself anyway) I refuse to follow diets or eat low fat products though, so because I like new things and different flavours I came up with this little salad.
The first thing I did was make the dressing, I’m a long time lover of balsamic vinegar and could drink it by the gallon. However, on salad it’s a bit runny. So I swished it into some Cherry Conserve (not that mental I have seen cherry and balsamic dressing for sale ready mixed but it cost about £6!) To add a bit of a kick I mixed chilli powder in. It tasted AMAZING.
For the salad itself I combined:
Watermelon is awesome on salads, it’s really refreshing in summer and contrasting with the other bold flavours of the balsamic dressing I made it was extra tasty. If you grab a bit of bacon, watermelon and feta at the same time it’s the epitome of a taste sensation!
If I was to make this again (WHICH I WILL, I could eat it every day!) I would add a red onion. Red onion is another thing that goes with watermelon really well.
What do you think? Would you try a salad like this? I would strongly advise it. If anyone else has an strange, weird and wonderful ‘out of the box’ recipes or food combo’s let me know, the healthier the better too!
