Cucumber Watermelon Salad

07/01/2014 — Leave a comment

During our lunch today, my son started dipping his watermelon into the olive oil on his plate. I thought that it was really cute. After watching him do this for a while, my husband decided to try it. “Hey! It is really good,” he said, “You should try it. The flavours really balance each other out.”

I laughed skeptically and finished my meal, as I watched them continue to dip their watermelon into olive oil. Then my son started adding cucumber to the watermelon on his fork, and dunking both of them in olive oil.

After we finished eating, I started to clean up and I finished the last few bites of food on my little one’s plate, like I always do. As I popped a piece of water melon into my mouth, I noticed that it had some olive oil on it. As soon as I tasted it, I paused, and said, “This really does taste good.”

“That is what we were telling you,” my husband said. Then I knew that we would have to try this combination again, and the result is this wonderful cucumber watermelon salad.

4 cups chopped watermelon
