Watermelon Cucumber Salad is the salad I’ve been missing all my life! Our garden is overflowing with cucumbers right about now and my hubby is. In. His. Glory!! But I’m not the type to just sit there and munch on a plain cucumber all on its own. It’s just too boring for me. I’m all about flavor!! And this juicy, refreshing salad is just bursting with it. Watermelon Cucumber Salad is a unique combination that’s the perfect balance of both sweet and savory. This gorgeous salad is made with just a few fresh and simple ingredients. No garbage, just good stuff, so you won’t feel guilty about loading up on this one. And it makes eating all those cucumbers so much more enjoyable. Hurry and grab a watermelon before summer’s gone! Definitely my new favorite way to eat cucumbers!
Here’s all you’ll need: seedless watermelon, cucumber, green onions, fresh mint, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.
First off….did you notice how my cucumber’s almost as big as the watermelon??? Well not quite…but we sure got some monsters this year! Start by cutting the cucumber in half lengthwise, then slice away. You’ll end up with a bunch of bitesize half circles. Or in this case, gigantic, mouthful sized half circles.
Next cube the watermelon, mince up that mint, and slice some green onions. Toss it all in a large bowl and mix to combine. Oooh…..It’s starting to look so pretty already!! This colorful salad is definitely a showstopper!! And that fresh mint makes it smell AHHH-mazing!!!
In a separate container, mix up the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. It’s best to use a container with a resealable lid. Triple check that the lid is sealed, shake it up and you’ve got yourself a delicious dressing. You could also swap out with a flavored balsamic vinegar or olive oil to take it to the next level!
Drizzle your homemade dressing over the salad like the boss that you are and we’re done! Watermelon Cucumber Salad is best served fresh. Don’t worry! You’re gonna wanna eat it right away!! This salad is so easy to make and comes together in moments notice. It’s the perfect last minute addition. No excuses on why you can’t bring a dish to that Labor Day potluck this year!!
So fresh! So delicious!! Watermelon Cucumber Salad I think I’m in love with you!!! You will be too. If you love easy recipes and fresh flavors then you’ve gotta try our Colorful Caprese Salad Kebabs.
