Notes

  • You can use seedless cucumbers instead if you don’t want to scape out the seeds.
  • If you don’t have red onions, you can use shallot.
  • If you find red onions to taste too strong, you can soak them in cold water for a couple of minutes before adding them to the salad.
  • I suggest avoiding bottled lime juice and use fresh limes for the brightest flavor. 
  • Feel free to use this watermelon mint salad as a guideline, as this recipe is very customizable. Add more or less watermelon, cucumber, and red onions as you wish. Since these ingredients vary in size, you can enjoy any extra on their own or just add it to the salad.
