Watermelon and Cucumber Salad

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

I have been on a watermelon kick lately so when I saw this in a weight loss magazine I knew it was one I wanted to try. Each 1 cup serving is 1 WW point and this is also a core recipe. The original recipe calls for seedless cucumbers. I'm not someone who is bothered by cucumber seeds in things but if you are, use a seedless kind. Cook time is stand time.


  1. Seed and chop the jalapeno pepper (using gloves so as not to get the oil on your hands).
  2. Mix the watermelon, cucumbers, and jalapeno together.
  3. Add vinegar and salt and mix well.
  4. Let stand at least 15 minutes for the flavors to blend.

I added feta to this salad so it was a bit of a hybrid of the two first watermelon salads on Food.com. Delish! Great way to serve the flavors of summer!

This is a real winner. Does not even need the jalapeno. Amazing what the red wine vinegar does to the flavor.

WOW! Strange combination that turns into a yummy salad that has your taste buds dancing! Delicious last night and the left overs today are still just as good or even better. So fresh and light! I made the recipe as is except adding just a touch more watermelon and mincing the jalapeno fine. Thanks for sharing.
