Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 6 people

  • 1 large Cucumber
    cut into 2cm cubes
  • 1 drop Olive Oil
    for brushing
  • 2 small Red Onion
    cut into 3 mm-thick rings
  • 600 g SuperValu Feta Cheese
  • 200 g SuperValu Green Olives
  • 1 small SuperValu Red Cabbage
    or radicchio
  • 0.25 - SuperValu Watermelon
    cut into 2cm cubes
For the Dressing
  • 1 tsp Fennel Seeds
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 6 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 - Red Chilli
    deseeded and finely sliced
  • 6 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 bunch SuperValu Fresh Mint
    finely sliced

Method

  1. To make the dressing in advance, toast the fennel seeds in a dry pan for 4 minutes over a low heat to release the aroma. Cut the garlic clove in half and pop it in a glass jar with the warm fennel seeds. Add the vinegar, oil and honey and shake to combine. The dressing will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge at this stage. When you're ready to serve it, add the chilli and mint and remove the two  garlic halves.
  2. Break the head of radicchio or red cabbage into leaves, wash and pat dry.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Brush the feta with oil and cook in the hot pan for 2 minutes on each side, then remove from the pan and cut into cubes. Add the onions and cook the rings for 2 minutes on each side.
  4. Arrange all the salad ingredients in rows on a large serving platter. Spoon over the dressing and allow everyone to help themselves. Serve with crust seeded bread.
