John Whaite's fruity salad recipe makes a bright and refreshing side to a BBQ
- 500g watermelon (about ½ small watermelon)
- 350g strawberries
- ½ cucumber
- 4 tbsp gin
- ½ x 28g pack mint, leaves shredded
Prepare up to an hour before serving; this allows the flavours to develop.
Cut the watermelon into thin triangles about 4mm thick, discarding the skin and any black seeds as you go. Hull the strawberries and slice them thinly. Slice the cucumber thinly, too. Arrange all the slices randomly on a large platter and drizzle the gin over the top.
Finish with a small pinch of salt and pepper, toss everything together, and scatter over the shredded mint leaves.
