Cool, Nutritious Summer Eats

Here’s a nutritious cooling summer salad that’s good for you & for all you recyclers out there we’re

using what would be food waste.

Watermelon Peel Salad

In Chinese Medicine we think of Watermelon as clearing summer heat & stomach heat. It generates

body fluids & relieves thirst.

Ingredients: 

500g (17 oz) watermelon peel (organic), 1 tsp salt, 20g (.71oz)

Dressing: 20g (.71oz) garlic minced, 1/2 tsp sugar, 1/4 salt, 2 Tbsp sesame oil, 3 tsp vinegar

Preparation: Take the white portion of the peel & cut into 2 inch by 1/2 inch strips,

combine the strips of watermelon peel & salt in a bowl, mix with hands for 5 minutes. Then rinse

under cold water to remove salt. Place peels on paper towels to dry. Finally combine garlic, salt, sugar

sesame oil & vinegar in a bowl. Mix with a whisk. Add the watermelon peel & toss until coated. Marinate

for an hour in the refrigerator before serving.
