Pistachio and Melon Salad



1.5 dl black quinoa

1.5 dl pistachios

1 kg watermelon

lots of mint

1 lemon (or Sumac if you prefer)

To have at home

rapeseed oil, honey, salt, pepper


Cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the package. (Or in a perfect world if you have already cooked it and it is in the fridge!). Peel and divide the melon into large pieces. Roast pistachios in a dry pan. Stir in 2 tbsp honey and 1 teaspoon salt. Pour onto baking sheet paper and allow to cool.

Mix 0.5dl of rapeseed oil with 2 tbsp squeezed lemon, 1 tbsp honey and if you want a pinch of sumac. Season with salt and pepper. Mix the dressing with the quinoa and melon on a large platter. Grate the mint over the quinoa and melon, and then sprinkle the nuts over it all.
