This cool and refreshing cucumber and watermelon salad is everything you love about summer -- all in one bowl. It's an excellent side dish to take along to a summer barbecue, potluck, or as a snack or side dish to make at home. It is the perfect balance of sweet and tangy once you add in your favorite balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
