This is a Food Travel More exclusive recipe. Basically, we had loads of cucamelons and I couldn't find many recipes for a Cucamelon salad! So I decided to create my own and throw everything in that I thought would work - and it did! If you're struggling for ideas of how to use up your cucamelons (rather than in a gin, which quite frankly is a great way to enjoy them), then do give this salad recipe a go.
Cucamelon Salad Recipe with Pomegranate
10 - 12 cucamelons, topped and tailed and cut into chunks
1-2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds (I'm boujie and buy pre-prepared as it's easier)
Sprinkle of pine nuts
Sprinkle of sesame seeds
1tsp of white wine vinegar mixed with 1 tsp of olive oil
Fresh mint - finely chopped
Optional - crumbled feta cheese (this really does take it to next level)
As we've already mentioned, the sharp, tartness of a cucamelon is a great alternative to use in a classic gin and tonic. We think it works best with Edinburgh Gin's Seaside Gin.
