  • Serves 4
  • Takes 15 mins plus cooling
  • 125 calories/serving


  • 500ml cherry juice or pomegranate juice
  • ½ vanilla pod, split
  • 550g pack watermelon wedges, rind removed, sliced into smaller triangles
  • 400g cherries, de-stoned
  • 10g fresh mint, leaves picked


  1. Put the juice and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Bring to the boil, then simmer until reduced by about two-thirds, syrupy and thick (be careful as it can easily catch and caramelize at this stage – it should remain purple-red and not begin to brown).
  3. Set aside to cool completely (or cool and chill for up to 3 days).
  4. To assemble the salad, arrange the watermelon and cherries on a serving platter.
  5. Remove the vanilla pod from the syrup, drizzle over the salad and scatter over the mint.
