  1. Steam the Tenderstem® broccoli for a few minutes until it is just tender. Remove and leave to cool.

  2. Lightly toast the pumpkin seeds in a hot frying pan until they start to turn crunchy and golden. Remove from the pan and leave to cool.

  3. Place the watermelon and cucumber in a bowl or on a large serving plate. Cut the Tenderstem® broccoli into bite-size pieces and add to the bowl. Crumble over the feta cheese and sprinkle over the toasted pumpkin seeds and chopped mint.

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and olive oil. Season with pepper. Pour over the salad and serve.


    If you wanted to transform this into more of a substantial salad, mix in 200g cooked Puy lentils as they make a delicious addition.
