Cucumber Watermelon Salad

Cucumber, watermelon and herbs are a delicious combination that’s perfect for the summer. Be sure to check and see if these ingredients are available at your local farmers market. Some farmer’s markets even double the value of your SNAP dollars. This particular salad uses lime juice and herbs for flavor, but you could also try this with a balsamic vinaigrette as well!

2 Tbs lime juice
¼ cup minced fresh parsley, cilantro or mint
2 medium cucumbers, washed, sliced lengthwise then sliced crosswise
