Watermelon Cucumber Salad
Serve this refreshing salad as a side dish with summer meals. Try chilling this salad in the refrigerator for 2 hours before serving to help the flavors come together. If you don’t have balsamic vinegar, try the juice of 1 lime or lemon. If you use tofu instead of feta cheese, you may want to season with a little salt.

2 cups cucumber*, cubed
1/2 cup red onion*, sliced
1/4 cup basil, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 ounces feta cheese or tofu*, cubed
Mix together watermelon, cucumber, red onion and basil in a large bowl.
Mix together olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl and pour over the watermelon mixture.
