I like to cook. Sometimes my daughter likes to eat.

Watermelon and Cucumber Salad

This is based on a recipe from Eating Well, I added cumin and cayenne to make it work with our turkey fajita taco dinner, but if I wanted to serve it with Southeast Asian food, I'd add mint instead of cumin. It was easy and delicious! A tiny dice for the cukes and watermelon would make it a great salsa for grilled shrimp.

2.5 t sugar dissolved in 2T rice vinegar
Add 1/4 t ea ground cumin and salt
A wee pinch of cayenne
Add 1.5 cup ea. diced watermelon and cuke
1/4 c chopped cilantro
Thinly sliced white part of two scallions

Delicious immediately.

Thank you, thank you! Our farmbox this week contained a large orange watermelon, and there's only so much watermelon/feta/black olive/mint salad that we can eat.

It's dead easy -- chunks of watermelon; pieces of really strong oil-cured olives; chunks of feta; chopped mint; a little olive oil; a little lemon juice.

Did you see that the Minimalist cribbed your cucumber salad this week? ;)
