I am obsessed with this tamarind dip and eat it with almost anything. It works really well with these skewers – a mixture of crisp bread, juicy watermelon and salty halloumi.

Main course

Buyer's guide

A watermelon should sound hollow when tapped and feel heavy for its size.


If sliced, wrap well and chill; otherwise store whole at room temperature.


Watermelon is usually served chilled for maximum refreshment. Serve simply in easy-to-eat wedges or remove the skin and cut into chunks for a salad. Hold the flesh over a bowl to catch the juice as you prise out the seeds.
