This cucumber watermelon salad screams summer! It only takes a few minutes of hands on time and is just in time for Memorial Day weekend. We love to use this salad for all of our cookouts and BBQ needs. This watermelon and cucumber salad is naturally Whole30, paleo and AIP friendly.
- Chopped up watermelon-I like to use a one inch cookie dough scooper and scoop it out. In my opinion this makes it a lot prettier too! Alternatively you can cut it out like you normally would with a watermelon.
- Fresh mint-Adds so much flavor and the smell is amazing! Chop it up real fine.
- Cucumbers-I like to leave the skin on and then take a vegetable peeler and peel back the skin to make stripes on the side. This makes for a more fun look!
- Extra virgin olive oil and lime juice-This acts as the dressing! The lime compliments the sweetness from the watermelon oh so well.
- Salt and pepper-To taste. Omit the pepper for AIP.
How to make this watermelon mint cucumber salad:
- Juice the limes, then mix all ingredients in a bowl!
What does this watermelon salad go with?
- We love this salad with just about anything, but it especially goes great with all kinds of BBQ food!
How do you cut a watermelon?
- I like to cut it in half with a long and sharp knife. Then, I take my one inch cookie scoop and scoop it out.
How long does this last?
- I suggest serving it right away or the cucumbers may get mushy.
What other flavors go well with watermelon? Cucumbers?
- Watermelon goes great with just about anything, but especially lemon and honey is wonderful. Cucumbers are so refreshing. They are nicely paired with balsamic and dill.
