No one wants to turn on a stove or oven during the hot summer months. Skip the hot meals and make cucumber watermelon salad instead.
When the temperature is nearing 100, the last thing I want to do is heat up the house with a stove or oven. I keep my house cool and get a tasty, light meal when I make a quick salad like this cucumber watermelon salad. Plus, it uses the best of summer produce!
Up until recently, I’d never made cucumber noodles. But, I love playing around with my spiralizer and decided to try and make them one night. So easy and they are perfect for this salad.
We buy a watermelon almost every week during the summer months. Sometimes the kids don’t eat as much as usual so I look for delicious ways to use it. Here it is combined with a few simple ingredients for a tasty salad.
I use a combination of mint and basil for the salad. Feel free to use just one if you prefer.
I prefer crumbled goat cheese in this cucumber watermelon salad. But, feta is also equally great with these flavors.
