Stirfried Watermelon & Fennel Salad w Avo Apple Dressing
Prep time
Total time
This is a delicious half warm, half cold salad with a hint of sweetness. Stir fried watermelon tastes amazing. The teaspoon of coconut oil I would not omit, as it gives a subtle creamy flavour to the melon. You can have this as a main (one bowl per person) or make smaller portions for entrée :-)
