Summer is just around the corner, which means warmer temperatures and (eek!) a reminder that it’s almost bathing suit season.

Here is one of my favorite summer salads — it’s refreshing, low calorie, and super easy! Also, because the watermelon and cucumber are so water-dense, it fills you up pretty quickly. Enjoy!

Cucumber-Watermelon Salad

Prep: 10 minutes | Total time: 10 minutes | Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 3 cups peeled and cubed English cucumber
  • 3 cups cubed seedless watermelon
  • 3 tablespoons fresh mint, minced
  • 2 oz. reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing to taste

Directions

  • Peel and cube your cucumber; cube the watermelon. Combine in large bowl.
  • Mince fresh mint on a cutting board–I use the incredible Zyliss herb tool. Minces in seconds! ($16.95, Williams-Sonoma). Sprinkle over cucumbers and watermelon.
  • Sprinkle feta cheese.
  • Toss all the ingredients together, then pour the desired amount of Balsamic Vinaigrette over the salad.

What is your favorite summer salad?
