This recipe is quick to make, with dazzling colors and a light oil-free dressing. If you use sushi vinegar, you won't need any additional salt or sugar.

  • Whisk rice vinegar, white wine vinegar, and lime juice together in a bowl; add mint. Muddle the mint by vigorously stirring and pressing the leaves with a spoon until they look bruised but aren't falling apart. Remove and discard mint leaves.

  • Drizzle the dressing over salad and gently toss. Sprinkle feta cheese over salad; toss gently.

No need to discard the mint leaves they add a splash of color! Between the vinegars and lime juice the sweetness of the watermelon is cut down so even some none watermelon people might enjoy this! (I did anyway!)This would be a great picnic salad! Read More

Without the feta cheese this salad would have easily been 5 stars. The blend of sweet cool sharp and tangy was perfect... except for the feta which clashed with the other ingredients. I like feta with watermelon or with cucumber but not with lime apparently. Next time I will leave the feta out and spike the dressing with a pinch of cayenne and a few cilantro leaves. Read More

7.27.18 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/233274/watermelon-cucumber-salad-with-sushi-vinegar-and-lime/ ... Yummy! This recipe will give ya reason to be thankful you have too many cucumbers from your garden! :D I don't think ya can have too many cantaloupes, but cucs, you can. :) Oh, wait, it calls for watermelon! Oops. ;) Yes, I subbed with cantaloupe. I didn't have red onion so added green. So good I may have to fix up a lessthanfivestar recipe like this. Fruit & cucs are an unexpectedly delicious combination. Thanks for sharing your recipe! One more thing! Wait to add feta until serving - or get over it isn't as pretty as it once was. :D https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/169564/cucumber-and-cantaloupe-salad/ Read More
