Watermelon-Cucmber Salad

By The Picky Vegan on August 22, 2011

I mentioned on my Facebook Page earlier today that I’m sick- just before Vida Vegan Con! That is why I didn’t post yesterday. I am doing this quick post right now, and I have a post to give you about the class I took at NGI yesterday, but that will have to wait. I’m resting up so that I can be in good shape to fly on Wednesday!

I’ve been making Watermelon-Cucmber salad for a few weeks now. Vegan Boyfriend came across this recipe a while back, but I made a few changes. Often salt will help to preserve food, but in this case I leave it out. Salt will cause liquid to precipitate out of cucumber, and I’d rather avoid this here. I make a up a big batch at the beginning of the week, and then eat it over the rest of the week- it keeps just fine.

I would also recommend making sure that your watermelon is very ripe. My most recent batch just wasn’t quite as good, as the watermelon was a little under ripe.

This recipe easily makes more. I base it on half of a small watermelon (or 1/4 of a large one), as I usually buy one that’s pre-cut/wrapped (I can’t eat a whole one by myself!). This can be easily doubled, tripled or more!...
