This easy and refreshing Cucumber Watermelon Salad is a guaranteed summer hit!
Summer is in full swing on the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. And, as summer heats up, so does my craving for all things barbecue. Last week we ducked into Moe’s for some Southern soul food and a hefty protein fix.
Moe’s Original Bar B Que is known for its Alabama-style pulled pork, racks of ribs, chicken (and on some days, tofu) smoked over hardwood, as well as their sauces, traditional Southern sides and down-home desserts. You can find Moe’s in Alabama, Colorado, Georgia and North Carolina.
Cucumber and Water Melon Make a Great Salad!
One of the sides offered the day we stopped in (they vary weekly) was a Cucumber Watermelon Salad. It sounded refreshing and certainly was. Of course I had to come home and recreate it. I loved it, my husband called it “unique” (what does that mean?) and my neighbor, Hannah, enjoyed it but would have preferred it a little less heavy on the red onion. It’s all a matter of personal taste—just tweak accordingly.
