Recipe - Bean and Watermelon Salad

Now this recipe is so quick and easy to make that I almost think I shouldn't bother posting it because it is not like a real recipe. However it is so simple and yummy (not to mention healthy) that it would be wrong of me not to share it.

There are even a few little things you can do differently to adapt it to suit your size and tastes.

In it's most simplest form all you need to do is

Dice up two slices of watermelon.
Throw in a few handfuls of a mixed baby leaf salad from your local supermarket.
Mix in a can of tuna and beans (John West has just brought out a new range with a couple of different flavours but don't feel obliged to get it because this is certainly not a sponsored post)

Eat and enjoy.

See I told you it was simple.

Here is what you could do differently

  • Get your own tin of beans rather than use the ones that come in the tuna.
  • Add tinned corn, beetroot or even pineapple. The super keen may even choose to use fresh.
  • Use fresh/frozen green beans
  • Drizzle with a light mustard dressing
Just perfect for the sizzling summer before us.

  1. Looks great!

  2. Does Tuna and Watermelon really go together? I think I will have to give that a go as I have those things here. Thanks for linking up with the Weekend Cookbook.

    1. Definitely give it a go Lisa, I think it is great but apparently that may not be in the majority. Would love to hear what you thought
