Minty Cucumber Salad

I recently had this salad at a church pitch in and was so surprised at how well these flavors blended together. It's a perfect cool salad for these hot summer days! Enjoy.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: n/a
Serves: 10-16
Cost: approx. $2.50

8 cups cubed watermelon ($2.00)
2 medium cucumbers, halved lengthwise and sliced ($.50)
6 green onions, chopped (I eliminated the onions)
¼ cup minced fresh mint
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper

In large bowl, combine the watermelon, cucumber, onions and mint.
In a small bowl, whisk the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.
Pour over watermelon mixture; toss to coat.
Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
