Cucumber Melon Salad

I LOVE this salad! So refreshing! The lime and mint is so good with the melon. I have made it several times now. The recipe comes from Cuisine at Home. It is actually what they suggest as a side to the Turkey Lettuce Wraps I recently posted. I have yet to serve it with them though. It was great with the ham. Be sure to try it when those melons are at their peak this summer. You will not be disappointed.

  1. Thanks for linking, Denise. I was surprised by the cucumber, but it seems like it would balance out the sweetness of the watermelon & cantaloupe well. Liking the idea of using this as a side for a wrap (or sandwich).

  2. This looks good! Such a refreshing salad. Thanks for sharing at last week's Marvelous Mondays party!
