    nomnom's Note:

    Cucumber-melon is the current trend in bathing accessories, and now in food as well. This is a yummy, summery treat as an appetizer, light lunch with a nice sandwich or salad, or as part of a multi-course meal (or even as a dessert soup).

    • Recipe, doesn't list how much salt, so I didn't use any salt. I didn't boil the water either, it was still good not using these things or cooking., and was done and chilled quicker. Taste was great, and if you like watermelon, why not. Makes a good diabetic recipe. Served with a multigrain oat bread and chicken filling., with l T. miraclewhip (lower fat content in miraclewhip than mayonaisee.

      A bit like dessert; felt it was good for children more than adults as the flavors were not very complex. Watermelon has lots of sugar, not a good fruit for diabetics.

      I really like this for a summery dessert. It's light and refreshing and guilt free! My 5 year old suggested blending the cucumbers too, although he's had quite a few bowls this way so he must not mind the chunks too much! I didn't boil the splenda water either, just heated a little, since splenda dissolves quickly. This is a great recipe, thanks!
