watermelon & cucumber salad with lime & basil

Cold, crunchy, refreshing and tangy - this is a super tasty & unique way to serve watermelon at a party.

If you can't find ricotta salata at your market, sub in feta...it's just as delish.   Or try my recipe for herb-marinated feta!

Serves 8

6 cups cold/refrigerated seedless watermelon - cut into 1/2 inch cubes
3 cold/refrigerated persian cucumbers (2 cups) - cut into 1/2 inch pieces
4 T. lime juice
2 t. lime zest
1/3 cup basil chiffonade
1/2 ricotta salata - coarsely crumbled

Combine cucumber, watermelon & lime juice and zest and gently stir.  Keep in very cold in refrigerator until ready to serve.  Just before serving add basil and ricotta salata and stir again.
