Watermelon is a favourite of mine in summer. When I'm not eating it straight from the skin with a spoon, I like to use it as a basis for spicy dishes. Thanks to the watermelon and jalapeño, this salad offers a wonderful contrast of sweet and spicy. If you've yet to try this combination, don't wait any longer – it may just become your new favourite!
