On a hot summer day, melons are probably the best hydrating foods out there. Additionally, they are a great source of potassium. Perfect on a day like today.
Salad: Thinly slice peeled and seeded watermelon, Cantaloupe and Galia melon as well as cleaned cucumber. I used a mandoline. I lightly salted the cucumber to make it easier to drape.
Dressing: Finley chop fresh oregano, parsley and basil. Mix with soy yoghurt and taste with lime juice and fleur de sel.
Assembly: On a stripe of dressing, drape the melon and cucumber slices. Decorate with oregano blossom.
I created this dish on the occasion of this month’s food challenge hosted by Foodblogs Schweiz with the brief “summer salads”.
