Watermelon & Cucumber Salad
Refresh yourself in this heat and make a summery side dish! Watermelon is the fruit of the summer! I love making this salad that is super easy and is always a crowd pleaser. It’s just enough flavors and crunch for everyone even those who don’t like watermelon as much (like me)! The right amount of salty and sweet pairings make it taste so amazing. I also switch out using basil and mint for this recipe, it’s whatever I’m feeling at the moment. Usually I use mint with it but sometimes I’ll use basil like this time! I also make a unique and special salad dressing of just plain Olive oil, salt and pepper, and good ole lemon juice! Let me know what you think!
This is such a great super easy recipe, perfect to bring to parties, or as an addition to any summer barbecue! Let me know how it tastes and where you’ll be bringing it!
