A DREAMY FRUIT SALAD

The good stuff:

  • Watermelons are wonderful fruits! So delicious and SO refreshing. With a high water content (92% water!) and a sweet taste, it’s the best thing to rehydrate in the summer months.
  • Watermelons also contain significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids.
  • Lychee is a beautiful fruit, exotic & dreamy- I absolutely love it! If you can get a hold of lychee in your part of the world, please enjoy it as much as you can 🙂
  • Lychees have one of the highest concentrations of polyphenols among fruits, including rutin, a bioflavonoid known to strengthen blood vessels!

You’ll need:

  • Watermelon, diced
  • Lychees, chopped in half
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Rose water (just a few drops) mixed with a bit of sugar (sugar is optional)
  • Pistachios, chopped (unsalted)

The process:

  • Mix everything in a bowl, let it sit in the fridge a little to “soak” the flavours.
  • Serve and enjoy 🙂
  • If raspberries are accessibly and affordable in your part of the world, I would recommend to throw some in there too 🙂
