Watermelon Cucumber Salad

This salad is rich with water making it an excellent choice on a hot summer day!
Jul 8, 2016 | Joy McCarthy

This Watermelon Cucumber Salad is the perfect dish when it's hot outside and you need to cool off. Both watermelon and cucumber are cooling foods because they are exceptionally high in water content, over 90% water in fact!

Here is this cooling, delicious and refreshing recipe.

Watched you Live and had to try it, it's so refreshing and delicious. I'll be making it again for sure! Especially with the size of watermelon I bought :-)

Hi Joy! Have NEVER BEFORE added anything to my beloved juicy watermelon; TBH - I wasn't sure if this recipe would work out at our house. And being so unsure of how it would go (with the feta, cucumber and evoo - no way!!!), I didn't even take a picture of the salads before my husband and I ate it yesterday afternoon. Oh my - results: This afternoon, I found myself right back at the watermelon bin getting stuff to make it all over again! We both LOVED it. So simple to make, HYDRATING (as you mentioned), so cooling to get through these oh-SO-hot summer days here in Jersey! Thanks so much for this DELICIOUS recipe AND the video to go with it (since I tend to be a visual learner).
