I'm a lettuce breeder. My favourite salad often includes Cos lettuce because of the nice sweet cruncy taste. Read more

Before it gets too cold, why don't you try these mouth-watering bite sized snacks of cherry tomato and watermelon?

This recipe comes from Spain, and as expected it reflects Spain's extensive history with many cultural influences which has led to a unique cuisine.


Cut the watermelon into slices 1.5 to 2 cm thick.

Remove the skin (and seeds) and cut slices into neat cubes (1.5 x 1.5 cm approx).

Cut the cherry tomatoes lengthwise into two.

Transfer the cherry tomatoes and the cubes of watermelon to a large bowl, pour in the olive oil and sprinkle sea salt over the fruits. Mix gently.

Take a cube of watermelon, put a mint leaf on top and place half a cherry tomato on the mint leaf and then fasten together with a cocktail stick.
