Notes

Purchasing Cucumbers:
Look for cucumbers that are dark green and firm; small bumps on the skin are normal.

Note:
Instead of buying a whole watermelon to get the 3 cups chunks needed to prepare this recipe, you can purchase either a miniature watermelon or pre-cut watermelon pieces from your supermarket.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups chopped watermelon (3/4-inch chunks)
  • 1 cup chopped cucumbers (1/4-inch chunks)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled ATHENOS Traditional Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons KRAFT Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

Directions

Combine ingredients. Serve cold.

 

Watermelon Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Watermelon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
