After a long day of tennis (or any physical activity for that matter), there is nothing quite as refreshing as fresh fruit. In the spirit of Wimbledon, we are featuring our strawberry, mint, and melon salad as our recipe of the week. Strawberries are a great source of vitamins C and B and contain potassium, iron, fibre and antioxidants. This year, instead of strawberries & cream and a glass of Pimms, why not try this easier-on-the-waist alternative?
Preparation and cooking time: 10 minutes
5 A DAY: 2
Ingredients (serves 2)
¼ Cantaloupe melon, chopped into 2.5 cm/1” pieces
1 tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped
150ml/5fl oz orange juice
1. Place all the fruit in a large bowl and scatter the mint over the top.
2. Add the fruit juice and mix so that all the fruit is covered. Chill in the fridge.
3. Serve with half-fat crème fraîche or low-fat yoghurt.
It is simple, affordable, and, more importantly, delicious!
