This super refreshing salad recipe is a great way to enjoy lots of hydrating produce from Ontario! This cucumber and watermelon salad is full of fresh, thirst-quenching flavour.

Cucumber water is a great pairing for this refreshing salad. To maximize all parts of the Ontario greenhouse cucumber, add left over ends of cucumbers or slices into a pitcher of ice water. This makes for a thirst quenching beverage.
