I love using seasonal produce to make interesting and tasty dishes for my guests to enjoy. This salad is so refreshing on a hot summer day. Your guests will no doubt be asking you for the recipe. As an added bonus, it is a simple dish to put together.
Watermelon is full of health promoting nutrients such as Lycopene. Most people love watermelon though, because it is a classic summer fruit that is associated with all the fun events people enjoy in the summer.

- 4 Ounces pure unsweetened lime juice (or juiced limes)
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 Medim red tomato (chopped)
- 1 Medium yellow tomato (chopped)
- 1 bunch fresh Cilantro (chopped)
- 2 Small cucumbers (halved and sliced)
- 1 Large red onion (peeled, halved and thinly sliced)
- 8 Cups seedless watermelon (cubed)
When picking out watermelon, the ripe varieties will usually have a yellow spot with a brown patch on it.
|Place lime juice in large bowl. Add salt and whisk until dissolved.|
|Wash tomatoes, slice off core, and cut into cubes. Do not remove skin. Add to bowl and gently stir.|
|Finely chop cilantro and add to bowl.|
|Slice cucumber in half and slice making half circle shapes and do the same with the red onion. Add both to bowl.|
|Remove rind from seedless watermelon. Make sure the pieces of watermelon used are firm. This will require picking out a ripe watermelon. If center feels soft, cut that out using only firm pieces.|
|Add to bowl and gently stir. Refrigerate for 2 hours and serve.|
