This salad, with its cool cucumbers and watery watermelon, is so thirst quenching it is like drinking a very flavourful glass of water!
2 English cucumbers, skin on
1 Tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped mint, and some leaves for garnish
1 cup (250 mL) crumbled feta cheese
3 cups (750 mL) cubed, de-seeded watermelon
Pinch of salt
1 Tbsp (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp (15 mL) fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped pistachios
Using vegetable peeler or mandoline, slice cucumbers very thinly lengthwise to create ribbons. Place in large bowl; add mint, feta, watermelon, and salt.
In small bowl, whisk together oil and lemon juice and pour over salad. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Add pistachios, garnish with mint leaves, and serve.
