This watermelon and cucumber salad is a refreshing addition to the big Christmas meal!
Put the onion in a bowl, mix with the salt, sugar and vinegar and set aside to soften for 20 mins, stirring occasionally.
Mix together the ginger, maple syrup, lime zest and juice.
Remove and discard the rind from the watermelon and cut the flesh into bite-sized cubes.
Cut the cucumber in quarters lengthwise, remove the seeds and cut into similar sized cubes as the watermelon. Toss with the dressing and season with salt and pepper. Put into a serving bowl and scatter over the strained, pickled red onions and toasted sesame seeds.
