We’ve been smashing the watermelon of late. The boys love it as a midmorning or afternoon snack. But don’t be giving them any of that regular watermelon – no, they will only eat the seedless watermelon variety. How lucky to grow up in an age where we have seedless watermelon.
I keep telling them that the seeds aren’t that bad, but if they spy a seed, they go into full melt down and I’m left examining every piece and pulling out the seeds for them.
This simple salad combines the refreshing seedless watermelon, with sun-kissed tomatoes, grilled halloumi and herbs. And is just what the summer BBQ calls for…enjoy it whilst you can.

Slice the halloumi into 1cm thick pieces and then grill on the BBQ.
