This recipe for Cucumber Watermelon Summer salad is refreshingly delightful, tossed together with a light avocado oil citrus dressing.
I don’t usually get too excited about salad, but this recipe for Cucumber Watermelon salad has now become my new fav. It is light and refreshing with a Tequila-spiked dressing, which you can omit for an alcohol free version. The combination of flavour from cucumbers, watermelon, cilantro, peppers and avocado tantalize your tastebuds to the max! Pair that with a dressing made with Avocado oil and Tequila, and you have a salad that will be on everyone’s “Please Make” list.
