Summer Watermelon Salad

The delicious combination of watermelon, cucumbers, queso fresco, chives and lime juice have summer written all over it. Last summer, I spotted this recipe in the Wegmans recipe book. I mention Wegmans quite a bit here on ABM, it’s our favorite grocery store! Not only is the selection of products amazing, they include the most delicious recipes in their quarterly magazines. Including this yummy summer salad!
For presentation purposes, after scooping out the watermelon, I saved the watermelon and transferred the completed salad into the "watermelon bowl." It makes for a great presentation and would be perfect to serve or take to your next BBQ.
