Watermelon Cucumber Salad

Watermelon Cucumber Salad

This summer salad just screams “Happy August!” I came up with this salad recipe because I had some cut-up cucumbers, peppers, and watermelon – a staple in our house in August -- in the fridge, plus some leftover cucumber juice, so I mixed all of it together and added some shallots and herbs. Of course, I also had to add some jalapeño for heat, and viola! A great summer salad.
