Summer watermelon, peach & cucumber salad

I usually have fruits for breakfast but today, I was craving fruits for lunch too. There is no rule against that is there?

And if there is, well... I must say breaking the rules sure does taste good.

This refreshing salad is sweet, juicy, simple, and will keep you hydrated and cool in the summer heat. 

It is easy to put together, quick, and hassle free. 

Prep Time: 10 mins

Method 

  1. Cut the cucumber any way you like (I had cut them into half moons)
