Cucumber Avocado Watermelon Salad

Prep Time 20min Cook Time 5min


  • 2 1/2 cups uniformly cubed watermelon
  • 1 small english cucumber, thinly sliced with a mandoline (I used this type of cucumber because it has fewer seeds and is less watery)
  • 1 ripe avocado, scooped into small balls with a melon baller
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
  • juice from one lime (or lemon, but I prefer lime)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped basil
  • salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper


Prepare watermelon, cucumber, and avocado and place in a large bowl. Squeeze lime over the top and gently stir. Then add olive oil, basil, salt and pepper. Gently stir and pour onto on a large plate.

Finish with a few cracks of black pepper and torn pieces of basil to garnish.
