Melon Salad with Lime Coriander Salsa


After a long holiday season with lots of heavy food, maybe you're craving something lighter? (Not me, really - I'll gladly have some pasta.) This melon salad is really tasty - it works well as an appetizer or a side dish. I prefer it alongside a juicy steak, but grilled chicken would also be good - or fish, for that matter. You could add other fruit too - I bet some sliced pear would be good. It's very versatile.

Melon Salad with Lime Coriander Salsa

80 g baby spinach
1 cantaloupe melon
1 red chilli
1 small red onion
1 garlic clove
handful fresh coriander
2 limes
3-4 tbsp olive oil
1/2-1 tsp flaky sea salt

Rinse the spinach and place it on a platter. Peel and slice the melon and arrange on top.

Finely chop chilli, red onion, garlic and coriander, and mix with the juice from the limes and the olive oil. Season with salt. Drizzle on top of the melon.
