Watermelon Cucumber Salad

July 14, 2011

Watermelon is one of the best treats of the summer. It’s refreshing and not crazy sweet. I wanted to put it into a dish that was a little on the tangy, savory side. This watermelon and cucumber salad is a perfect side for a summer meal.

You will need:

  • 2 c seedless watermelon, diced
  • 2 c seedless cucumber, diced (peel on or off…your choice)
  • 1/2 c cilantro, chopped
  • 3 T rice vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 c dry roasted peanuts, roughly chopped

Then you…

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the watermelon with the cucumber and cilantro.
  2. Stir in the vinegar, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Toss with the peanuts just before serving!

Note: if you prefer sweet to vinegar, you can add 2 t of sugar to the vinegar before tossing with the salad!
