Colleen's Watermelon Salad

This salad was such a refreshing addition to the Christmas Eve table - and we have been eating it ever since.

Shred 1/2 a small lettuce and mix with a large handful of rocket (or use all rocket), cut half a watermelon into cubes and place over the greens. Chop up a round of feta and add to the salad. Finally sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds.

Whisk the dressing and pour over salad just before serving:
35 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
60 ml (1/4 cup) olive oil
1 teaspoon good sea salt (Maldon)
a serious grinding of black pepper

An excellent summer salad, the peppery rocket and the sweet watermelon are magical together.
