Summer is just around the corner here in Melbourne and I’ve been craving lots of fresh fruit and salads lately. So I put one and one together and created this bright, refreshing, fruity summer salad.
This summer salad is super easy to make. It only uses 8 ingredients and takes 5 minutes to put together.
It might sound a little strange to put watermelon and blueberries into a salad together with rocket and cucumber, but trust me, it’s delicious! It makes a perfect side salad for a (vegan) bbq or to eat on its own for a light and yummy meal.
Making this salad makes we want to eat more fruit and raw foods again. and all the colours just make me really happy!
