Cucumber, Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad - Lime Syrup
It has been an amazing summer season of harvesting cucumbers & I have an abundance of them. This salad is clean, fresh & easy to prepare. The combination of sweet and savory flavors is perfect for brunch or a late afternoon treat.
2 Medium Cucumbers - Peeled & Sliced into ½ -inch discs
½ Large Seedless Oval Watermelon - 1-inch Chunks
1 Cup - Crumbled Feta Cheese

For Lime Syrup
1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
