This is such a nice refreshing summertime salad. It sort of has a sweet-sour taste to it. Who'd a thought watermelon, cucumbers and green onions, would go so well together in a salad!!

How to Make Watermelon and Seedless Cucumber Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl that would hold 8-cups of liquid, fruit, and vegetables, add the slices of green onion, and the chunks of cucumbers and watermelon.
  2. In another bowl mix together the sugar, cider vinegar, water, all the salt and pepper, plus the poppy seeds. Stir until the sugar looks like it has dissolved into the liquid.
  3. Pour the liquid mixture (the brine), over the fruit and vegetables.
  4. Cover the bowl, and place it in the refrigerator for 2 hours, to chill and marinate the watermelon, cucumbers, and onion.
  5. After 2 hours, remove the watermelon, cucumbers, and onion from the brine, and discard the brine.
  6. Return the watermelon, cucumbers, and onion to the bowl, and serve the salad immediately. (If desired, sprinkle the salad with a bit more of the poppy seeds just before serving.)
  7. *Note: In regards to the green onion: I first cut the onions to 3-1/4 inches in length, and then discarded the remaining green part of the onion. I then cut the onion into thin slices.
