Watermelon & Cucumber Salad

Last night I was trying to think of ways to eat the giant watermelon sitting on my kitchen table.  Of course, I could chop it up & eat it. #classic  I really like agua fresca, so maybe I could blend some for juice.  But what else could I do with a melon?

Then, it hit me:  Watermelon & Cucumber Salad!  I remember eating a similar salad a long time ago, but I never made it before.  After reading a few recipes online, I decided to give it a try.

It was so delicious & refreshing, I had to share my recipe.
