This recipe was taking from BBC Good Food as part of National BBQ Week. This salad would go perfectly with our Helen Browning’s BBQ Boxes!


  • 400g tomatoes in a mixture of colours and sizes, if possible
  • ½ Charentais or cantaloupe melon
  • ½ Galia melon
  • 200g tub cubed watermelon

For the dressing

  • 1½ tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp groundnut oil
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small bunch of mint , leaves picked
  • ¼ tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp elderflower cordial
  • 4 tbsp double cream


To make the dressing, put the vinegar, oils, half the mint, the mustard, sugar and cordial in a blender, then season and blitz to combine. Add the cream and check the seasoning – this is a sweet-sour dressing, so you need to get the balance right. Halve the smaller tomatoes and cut any larger ones into wedges. Place in a shallow serving bowl. Remove the seeds from the Charentais or cantaloupe and Galia melons, cut into wedges, peel and cut the flesh into chunks. Add to the bowl with the tomatoes, along with the watermelon. Drizzle over some of the dressing, scatter over the remaining mint leaves and serve.

Delicious! Sounds refreshing!
