Watermelons in great variety are one of the most refreshing fruits. Serve them well chilled, in combination with other fruits and vegetables, for example – radishes. And why not? Use other herbs if you like – fresh dill, cilantro. Everyone seems to have different tastes about the proper seasoning.
Watermelon Salad with Radish and Sage
- 1/2 Chinese radish (Daikon), peeled and sliced thinly
- 1/4 small watermelon, peeled and sliced thinly
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- thyme, sage
- salt and freshly ground pepper
- smoked paprika to taste
- 2 Tbsp. grapeseed oil
Arrange watermelon and radish slices on a plate. In a small bowl whisk together the grapeseed oil, lemon juice, herbs, paprika, salt, and pepper. Dress the salad just before serving. Have a good lunch!

We've been eating a lot of daikon radish this time of the year, but never had it with the watermelon. The taste and flavor of this two ingredients marry well together, I can imagine it with my taste buds. The only thing left is to find watermelon! Beautiful photos! 🙂
