This minty Watermelon Cucumber Salad is a light, cool salad that can be enjoyed as a lunch, snack, or side. Crumbled feta cheese and red onion are optional; to us, the flavor combination is perfect!

If you wish, add more protein with pistachios. Change the ratio of watermelon to cukes. This salad is flexible!

1/4 cup olive oil
1/8 cup red wine vinegar (or balsamic)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint or cilantro
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
5 cups cubed seedless watermelon (from 5-lb watermelon)
2 cups seeded and sliced cucumbers
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
Optional: 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese.
Salt and pepper to taste

In one bowl, mix olive oil, vinegar, mint, red pepper flakes, and salt/pepper seasoning. 

In another bowl, combine watermelon, cucumbers, and onions. Add optional feta.

Pour dressing over fruit and vegetables and toss to coat.

Taste and add more salt if needed.

Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
