Watermelon is such a refreshing summer fruit! This salad combines it with cucumber, feta cheese, and a little olive oil and red wine vinegar to make a deliciously light summer meal or side dish. I just received some cucumbers from a friend who has a thriving vegetable garden, so I decided it was the perfect time to make this salad–especially since the day was particularly warm. Hope you have a chance to try it out before the end of summer!
