The minty Watermelon Cucumber Salad is a light, natural, and refreshing salad that can be served with any meal or as a flavorful snack in between meals. Optional crumbled feta cheese, but we think it goes well with watermelon!
Remove the red onion if desired. Pistachios are a good source of protein. Change the watermelon to cucumber ratio. This salad is very adaptable.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/8 cup vinegar (red wine) (or balsamic)
2 tbsp fresh mint or cilantro, chopped
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, crushed
5 cups seedless watermelon cubes (from 5-lb watermelon)
2 cups cucumbers, seeded and sliced
1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
Optional: 1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Combine olive oil, vinegar, mint, red pepper flakes, and salt/pepper seasoning in a mixing bowl.
Combine the melons, cucumbers, and onions in a separate bowl. Optional feta cheese
Toss the fruit and vegetables in the dressing to coat them.
If necessary, season with additional salt.
Propane Fridges for at least one hour before serving.
Popsicles made with watermelon
My kids and I both loved these stacked Watermelon Popsicles! They’re essentially made of fruit, with a few chocolate chips thrown in for good measure, while the white portion of made of coconut milk. As long as you use good, ripe fruit, the flavors will be very delectable and refreshing.
I built them a few times, trying to figure out the best method to keep the layers from blending, but even if you keep the sides very clean, you’ll probably discover a negligible amount.
You could use small raisins instead of chocolate for the seeds if you want, but I prefer chocolate.
Light coconut milk would work just as well; it won’t be as white or creamy, but it’ll still be great.
I wish you all a wonderful summer! And you might as well start with these. Because the layers require a little more time and patience, but they are well worth it.
If you don’t have a popsicle mold, this is the one I use, and it works perfectly!
