Cucumber melon is so much more than a Bath & Body Works scent.

Cucumber Melon Salad

It’s a way of life, a flat stomach kind of life.  I think that melons are an extremely underrated food… why isn’t there readily available melon juice?  Both of these fruits are hydrating, and refreshing.  Here’s how to make a gorgeous cucumber melon salad.

Cucumber Melon

You’ll need a half cup of diced cucumbers (remove the seeds), and one cup of diced melon.

Skinny Salad

Mix the diced cucs + mellies in a bowl.  Add 1 teaspoon if honey, and 1/4 teaspoon of lemon pepper.  If you’re not into lemon pepper, squeeze a lime wedge over the salad instead.  Toss that salad.

Summer Salad

Serve the salad over a bed of low-fat cottage cheese, or greek yogurt.  If you want to make the plates look fancy, add a drizzle of honey.  This salad is sweet, refreshing, tangy, and crunchy.  J’adore the textures and flavors.  When served correctly, this salad is beautiful.

Be cooler than a cucumber.
