Here again I sit wondering who said salads were boring? Almost every time I sit here with a salad I wonder this and think my salads aren’t boring. The next time I hear someone say salads are boring I am going to prove them wrong! First by telling them to search salads on my blog and second by making them a salad! Berries have been replaced in my salads lately with other in season fruits like watermelon. Yes watermelon in a salad, if you haven’t tried it you must it is so refreshing! This time I paired them with cucumbers and basil from our garden, avocado and red onion. Our onions aren’t ready yet so I’m still buying those and no avocado tree here unfortunately but wouldn’t that be the life if I did. If only more things grew here I would have avocado trees, citrus trees, fig trees, and a much bigger garden. Someday maybe as getting more land and having apples trees is on our list. Back to the salad, one bite, just one bite and I think you will love this fresh flavorful combo too. I wrote the recipe out for one as this is one I often throw together for lunch but it is easily multiplied to make for the family for dinner or for a large group for a picnic, just remembering to add the avocado just before serving if making ahead of time.

 

Watermelon Avocado Cucumber Salad
Makes 1 serving, easily multiplied for family/groups
1c- 3/4″ watermelon cubes
1/2 ripe avocado, cut into chunk/cubes
2-3 thin slices red onion
6-8 fresh basil leaves, torn or chopped
1/2-1 cucumber, cut into slices and quartered (about 1c)
sea salt and pepper to taste

 

In a bowl or on a plate combine watermelon cubes, avocado cubes, red onion slices, cucumber, and basil. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste. Simple as that, enjoy!

      Thank you! Just remember to set aside some watermelon when cutting it or it may disappear before you can make it!

  2. I love a watermelon salad! The avocado is such a good idea. I like to add some salty cheese like a feta too.
