This salad is simple, juicy, and thirst-quenching, making it a must-serve dish on hot summer days. Bastyr University nutrition student Lizzie Diehl recommends serving her Watermelon Cucumber Salad at room temperature to let the flavors speak.
Place the watermelon and cucumber in a serving bowl and gently mix together. Finely chop the basil leaves, and add to the mix. Add zest from half of a lemon, then give the salad a final light toss. Enjoy in the shade.
