Ingredients

  • 3 cups watermelon seedless, cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups cucumber peeled and cubed
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint leaves thinly sliced
  • Zest from two limes
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice about 2 limes
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • Pinch sea salt

Instructions

  1. Cut the rind off the watermelon and cut into medium-sized cubes (about ½-inch).
  2. Peel the cucumber, if you prefer, and cut into similar sized cubes.
  3. Slice the mint leaves thinly. To chiffonade, stack the leaves on top of each other. Roll them up lengthwise into a bundle, then thinly slice.
  4. Combine these ingredients in a large bowl.
  5. In a smaller bowl or a small jar, combine the lime juice, lime zest, olive oil, salt and pepper. Stir (or shake) well to combine. Pour over the watermelon and cucumber and stir well.
