Do you like watermelon? I surely do. For me, it’s a 100% summer fruit (or berry? any botanists around here?). And who doesn’t love summer? Especially here in Hamburg, where it is so short and often cold, you have to enjoy every warm day. It’s just perfect for these two weeks of heat a year, when your body is begging for something refreshing. Normally, you just cut the watermelon in slices and eat them. Maybe you take them with you to the picnic. Maybe you just eat watermelon as a dessert or snack. And it’s great, I love it! But you know, there is a lot more than that.

You can make a watermelon radish salad from it! It’s really easy to make, it’s crunchy, it’s light, and it has this fresh summer touch you will miss so much in wintertime! Or you won’t, if you live in a paradise place, where there is eternal summer and fresh local fruits all year round. But hey, then you can enjoy watermelons any time. And I really envy you. 😉

How to Make Thai Watermelon Radish Salad with Blueberries

 

For your Thai style watermelon radish salad, you might want to take a seedless watermelon. Of course, you can remove the seeds as you go, but it might be a bit time-consuming, increasing the preparation time. However, in some countries it’s hard to find seedless ones for a reasonable price. For example, in Russia we have really big ones (7-10 kilograms) with a lot of seeds. They taste great though. If you have a similar one, don’t worry, you don’t need much of watermelon for your salad, unless you prepare it for a lot of people.

 

For 2 servings, 10 watermelon balls would be enough. If you are into food carving, or just want to make your food look better, consider buying a melon baller. I own one, and I use it not only for melon and watermelon balls, but also for avocados, ice cream and butter. If you don’t own one, it’s OK, too. Just use a 1/4 tsp rounded measuring spoon, or simply a coffee spoon. Your balls might end up being egg-shaped, but it’s not a problem here. You can also cut it in cubes, if you are not so much into ball-making.

Instructions
  1. Wash the salad greens. Drain and arrange them evenly on two plates.
  2. Arrange the watermelon balls/cubes on the salad greens.
  3. Wash and cut roots and green out of your radishes. Slice and add them to the salad.
  4. Finely chop the onion and sprinkle the salad with it.
  5. Crumble the feta cheese with your fingers and sprinkle it on the salad. If your feta cheese is too soft, put it under very cold running water for about 10 seconds. This will firm it up.
  6. Put blueberries and parsley on top of the rest.
  7. Prepare the dressing: mix lime juice, olive oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, and chilli. You can adjust the amount of chilli according to your taste. Pour the dressing just before serving.
  8. Sprinkle the salad with sesame seeds.
  9. Serve and enjoy!
