CUCUMBER MELON SALAD // The Kitchy Kitchen

This is the salad equivalent to frozen grapes: super refreshing, your last chance against a hot summer day. The cool fruit combined with refreshing mint is enough, but with a bright honey/lime combo and some habanero, it’s exactly what you need when you’re sweating buckets. This works with literally ANY other fruit, by the way, so get creative with it!

CUCUMBER MELON SALAD // The Kitchy Kitchen


1 cup cubed cucumber

1 cup cubed watermelon

1 cup cubed cantaloupe

1 cup cubed honeydew

1/4 cup finely chopped mint

1 habanero, seeds removed and thinly sliced (optional)

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 tablespoon honey

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Combine everything. For the best flavor, let it sit in the fridge for about an hour to let the flavors come together. Remember, the longer it sits, the spicier it will get!
