Serves 8

Prep time 30 minutes, cooking time 


  • Half a sweet & ripe seedless watermelon
  • 1 small red onion
  • 250g goat feta cheese
  • Bunch of fresh parsley & mint
  • 15g of dried Sea Spaghetti strands
  • Freshly ground black pepper & kelp sea salt
    • 4 tbsp extra-virgin oil
    • Juice of 2 lemons
    • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    • 1 tbsp grainy mustard


      1. Soak the Sea Spaghetti in tepid water (or warm mind tea for a different flavour) for 30 minutes.
      2. Peel the red onion, halve and cut into very thin half moons. Steep in the lemon juice to mellow the flavour.
      3. Remove watermelon rind and cut in medium size chunks. Transfer to a wide shallow bowl and garnish with the re-hydrated Sea Spaghetti .
      4. Add the onions, reserving the juice for the dressing.
      5. Crumble the feta cheese over and garnish with chopped mint & parsley.
      6. For the dressing, combine all the ingredients (including the lemon juice) and drizzle over the salad.


      This recipe also works nicely with other types of melon (rock or honey melons); instead of cutting chunks, try shaved with a vegetable peeler, for a different look & texture.
