We made this at work for a cardiac rehab luncheon for > 100 people. It turned out great! We had people requesting the recipe and also coming back for seconds. What a great combination.

This is so good. I made it today for a family golf tournament, and I think they are gonna love it. It is really refreshing, just the right combo of sweet and savory. Will make it again for sure!

Excellent!! I used vanilla balsamic vinegar and blood orange olive oil! Added dressing right before serving. Also, didn't have mint so used fresh basil. Family loved!!

I made this last summer for a cookout and everyone loved it! Chilled it for a couple of hours first and it was very cool and refreshing. I have made it several more times since then for home and pot luck dinners and am always asked for the recipe. I make it like it is written except for using cucumbers from my garden when I can instead of English cucumbers and I do peel them first. It's easy to cut in half for just my family. Thank you, Roblynn!

Great summer salad and so refreshing. Next time I will peel off the cucumber skins as they seemed tough.

Yummy salad. Made as stated. Added dressing 2 hrs before serving as suggested and tasted great.

We thought this salad was very refreshing and a nice change of pace from your "typical" sweet melon salads.

Made this for a pot luck supper at church. Everyone loved it. All said they had never thought of combining cucumber and watermelon but it worked.

I thought this was okay. It is certainly different. Got mixed response from the guests at the party too. Likely won't make it again.
