We're pretty sure they were talking about this salad when they came up with the saying "cool as a cucumber". This melon, cucumber, avocado salad with a tangy mint dressing and roasted pistachios is fresh and delicious.
Add your cucumber, avocado and melon to a bowl.
In a separate small bowl, mix your olive oil, lemon juice, salt, mint and chilli flakes.
Add your dressing to your fresh fruit/veg and toss to combine.
Serve topped with roasted pistachios and extra fresh mint.
