Sophia Lindop’s Lebanese heritage shines through in the salad, delicious on its own,or with a cheese platter – or a roasted crispy cracklinged belly of pork.
2 tbsp good quality olive oil
225 g chorizo, cut into slices
¼ small ripe watermelon cut into shavings, pips removed
½ red onion sliced very thin
Fresh basil, shredded finely
Heat the olive oil in a pan and flash fry the chorizo in the oil. Retain the oil to use as a dressing. Set aside to cool.
Place the watermelon shavings onto a platter and top with the red onion. Add the chorizo and basil and drizzle with the cold olive oil from the pan.
Serve with a cheese platter as a light lunch or as an accompaniment to pork belly.
