I was craving something refreshing to eat for dinner, but wanted something that didn’t require much work at all. I love the play of sweet and savory, so I figured I would use watermelon as the main part of my meal. Since mint and watermelon go so well together, I decided to make a mint pesto to go along with it. It’s an instantly addicting combo!
Blend together all the ingredients into a pesto sauce and spread it on each slice of watermelon and enjoy! I used nutritional yeast in the pesto, so this is vegan.
Watermelon Sandwich with Mint Pesto
- 2/3 Cup Fresh Mint
- 1/4 Cup Fresh Basil
- 1/2 Cup Cashews
- 1 Lime juiced
- 2 Tblsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 - 2 Tblsp Nutritional Yeast
- 3 Slices of Watermelon cut into 4" squares
Blend all the ingredients except the watermelon. Add more oil if needed.
Cut the watermelon into three 4 inch squares. Layer the pesto in between the watermelon slices. Finish off with a squeeze of lime.
*NOTE: For a party, you could cut the watermelon into 1 inch squares and serve it with a fancy pick in it.
