Fresh Watermelon & Cucumber Salad w/ Mint
What's better than having some watermelon on a warm summer's day? How about change up that refreshing flavor with a bit of a twist! Try adding in some cucumber, a hint of mint, and a squeeze of lime! We decided to try this new watermelon & cucumber salad this year on the 4th of July and serve it with all of our summertime favorites. It was a hit for everyone in the family!
My kids also love to add Tajin to their watermelon and it added a little bit of saltiness and a slight kick to it all!
