let's play hide-and-seek!

Lychee & Watermelon Salad

Salad? Not really a big fan of raw greens, not sure why, maybe i am too in love with meat! Ratio of greens and meat, probably would be 4:6!

The salad that i made this round, got the inspiration from a meal i had at S.WINE, love it! Its just simply appetizing, really fulfilled the thirst of having a real juicy salad during a hot day. What can i say more, although i am not a total fan of salad, i still have my favorite salad at my pick, like mushroom & feta salad, Caesar salad with real creamy Hollandaise sauce, watermelon & lychee salad… Duck Confit salad, that’s what i could think of now. Anyway, i do not really have an exact measuring for all the ingredients i used, i love to go easy with all the salad i make, as long as i get the flavor for the dressing i want, its all about tasting it while making. Trial and error for a better salad next time.

Ingredients (serving for 4)

half watermelon (cut into square pieces)
1 can of lychees (drained and cut)
Bacon Strips (grilled till crispy)
some green lettuces & butterhead (i used 3)
Small bunch coriander, roughly chopped
Small bunch mint, roughly chopped
1 bunch of peanuts, roasted and roughly chopped
Juice of 2 orange
Juice of 1 lemon
drop of mustard (optional)
extra virgin olive oil to drizzle
Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to roast the bacon strip till crispy, set aside. Slice up all the fruits and greens needed for the serving. Roast the peanut for while till brown, and chop it into smaller pieces.

Once everything is sliced, just combine everything in a bowl together with the roasted bacon pieces, squeeze over the lemon and orange juice, add in a little mustard, then drizzle with a olive oil, add in salt and pepper and toss to combine.

Sprinkle the peanuts on the salad before serving. This salad can be served warm.

Enjoy the recipe! cook & smile.

  1. This sounds really yummy! I’ve always considered lychee as an ingredient in a dessert, not in salad. I can’t wait to give this recipe a try!
