Watermelon, Jalepeno, Mint and Tofu Salad

There are quite a few watermelon-jalepeno or watermelon-feta or watermelon-mint recipes out there. This one combines all of them into one. I used raw tofu seasoned with oregano salt instead of feta. Non-vegans can use feta or any other soft creamy cheese.

Personally, I prefer keeping the watermelon seeds, as well as scraping the watermelon off its green rind and using every last inch of watermelon because closer to the rind and the rind itself is where all the nutrients are!

Watermelon, Jalepeno, Mint and Tofu Salad

Ingredients
  • 3-4 cups of watermelon, cubed (and deseeded, if you prefer it that way)
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 inch knob of ginger, finely chopped/grated
  • 1-2 jalepeno peppers, chopped
  • 3/4 cup of silken tofu, the softer the better
  • Teaspoon of oregano flavoured salt
  • Dash of balsamic vinegar
To make:
  • Break up your tofu into crumbs with your fingers. Season with the oregano salt.
  • In another plate, combine the watermelon, jalepenos, ginger and mint. Leave this in the fridge for 3-4 hours to chill and for the flavors to infuse.
  • When you want to eat the salad, add the tofu (or cheese of your choice) on top of the watermelon salad, and top off with a dash of balsamic vinegar.
