Watermelon and goat's cheese salad
This is a light and refreshing salad which is simple to put together and is a great barbecue or dinner party side. Goes great with spiced, skewered lamb or chargrilled chicken.

- 1 cup fresh mint leaves
- ½ cup soft white cheese (try fresh ricotta, mozzarella, goat’s cheese
- or feta)
