Watermelon is ripe and juicy this time of year! Check our your local farmers market to find the fresh produce to make this yummy cucumber watermelon salad. It will add some fresh flavor and color as you gather your family around the dinner table tonight!

Ingredients

2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup minced fresh parsley
2 medium unpeeled cucumbers, washed, ends removed, sliced lengthwise then sliced crosswise
3 cups watermelon, cut in 1-inch cubes (about 1 pound)

Directions

  1. Combine the lime juice, sugar and salt in a 2-quart bowl; whisk together. Stir in parsley.
  2. Add cucumbers; toss with a rubber spatula, coating all cucumber pieces. Add watermelon; fold in gently.
  3. Cover, set aside and allow juice from the watermelon to mix with the other juices. Stir gently and let stand at room temperature 1 hour before serving.

Cooking Note

Choose a watermelon without a flat side and that sounds hollow when you knock on it. Look for a melon with a dull (not shiny) rind free of soft spots, gashes or blemishes.
