A Summer FAvorite | Watermelon cucumber Salad

Hello summer time! I can’t believe June is here and the heat is already rolling in. Can you believe this recipe was one of my very first blog posts almost THREE years ago! I forgot about this little gem until one of my friends requested it at a recent gathering. I forgot how easy this salad is to make and did I mention GOOD!

I recreated this recipe after having something really similar at our local Dish Society restaurant. It has been a favorite ever since. ūüôā This salad makes for an easy refreshing snack or the perfect side to a summer BBQ or dinner.

Watermelon Cucumber Salad

1/2 of a watermelon cut into small pieces

2 cucumber peeled and cut into small pieces

Fresh Mint -small handful chopped OR try it with basil if you are not a fan of mint

Juice of one lemon

Sea salt & coarse black pepper

Mix the watermelon and cucumber together in a bowl.  Once mixed, squeeze 1/2 of a lemon over the salad, depending on the lemon, and taste you can add the other 1/2 if needed.  I ended up squeezing one full lemon on mine because I like it more tart.  Then add the chopped mint and stir.  You can start small with the mint, as the flavor is strong and add to your liking.  Add 1/4 tsp of salt and pepper.  Mix well and dig in!

I like to use melamine bowls for easy storage and travel.


I hope you love this summer creation as much as we do! I would love to know if you try it too. Thank you for reading about what I love.
