Scarlet breakfast treats…. delectably sweet. Good to serve to non-raws.
½ juicy watermelon, remove skin
1 box strawberries, hulled
½ cup Goji berries
2 tablespoon Raw honey or agave to taste
4 limes , squeeze the juice
2 bunches basil, chop finely
The watermelon needs to be chopped two different ways. First chop the water melon into 1.5 cm slices. Now either cut into a geometric shape (In the photo it is a triangle); Alternativly be posh and cut a shape out using a cookie cutter. Now dice up all the left over bits of the watermelon into cubes approx 1cm by 1cm. Who measures these things?
Put the shapes of watermelon on to the serving plates (they are your base) and put the diced watermelon into a bowl.
Into the bowl add diced strawberries and the goji berries.
Mix the honey and the limes together with 1 strawberry, when combined stop blending/mixing and add the basil (if you blend this it will go green). Pour this mixure over the berry.melon mixture and allow to marinate for 10 minutes giving it a quick flick with the fork to mix it up.
When ready to serve spoon the marianted watermelon, stawberries and gojis over the watermelon flats.
Garnish with baby basil leaves and drizzled honey around the outer edges of the plate.
Ok I know melons shouldn’t be combined, but rules are made to be broken every now and then.
