Spicy Watermelon Street Salad

// Get ready to cook:


1. Cut watermelon into large dice. Halve cucumber lengthwise then core; cut into slices. Roughly chop mint leaves. If desired, lightly toast pine nuts in a pan at a low heat for approx. 5 mins and set aside.

2. For dressing, whisk Mozambican Coconut Piri Piri with orange juice in a small bowl.

3. Place watermelon, cucumber and mint into a salad bowl. Crumble over feta and drizzle with dressing. Toss to mix well. Garnish with pine nuts and serve immediately.

Shop List:

2 Tbsp (30g) Mozambican Coconut Piri Piri

¼ Watermelon (200g)

½ Cucumber

100g Feta Cheese

15g Fresh Mint

60ml Orange Juice

30g Pine Nuts



Toasty Nuts

Try toasting pine nuts in the microwave - it’s easier and faster than using a pan or oven and produces great results. Just put the pine nuts on a plate and microwave for 1 min then in 30s intervals thereafter. Each time stir the nuts to ensure they don’t brown too much on one side. To get an even deeper roast toss the pine nuts with ½ tsp vegetable oil before microwaving.

Mozambican Coconut Piri Piri

Mozambican Coconut Piri Piri


Mozambican Coconut Piri Piri captures the essence of Mozambique, an East African coastal nation, whose culinary culture has also been influenced by its Portuguese colonial past. It is inspired by the iconic Piri Piri restaurant in Maputo city, a simple unpretentious eatery which has served locals its signature grilled piri piri chicken for decades.
