Cucumber Melon Medley


I have always found the combination of cucumber and melon to be a nice clean scent. I was curious about how they might taste together. Both cucumbers and melons are so refreshing on a hot day– lots of flavor from the melon, and a nice light flavor from the cucumber. Desiring to keep this recipe simple, I used few ingredients. This medley is in a category of it’s own for it’s combination of sweet, salty and tart flavors. I hope you and enjoy it as much as I did!

  • 4 cups of melon, cut into 1 to 1.5″ cubes
  • 2 cups of cucumber, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup plain feta crumbled
  • 1/4 fresh mint leaves
  • Grapeseed oil
  • Sea salt (himalayan)
  • Lemon
 Combine melon, cucumber, mint (roughly chopped) and feta tossing well. Mix in 1 to 2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil, and the juice of 1/2 lemon. Mix in 1/2 tablespoon of sea salt. Refrigerate and serve chilled. Garnish with additional mint leaves.

  1. This looks like a perfect snack for the warm weather. I don;t know why I never thought to put them together. Cucumber melon toiletries do go well together, so why not have it as a snack! Thanks for the recipe!
