Cucumber + Melon Salad with Cilantro and Mint

Cucumber + Melon Salad with Cilantro and Mint by Chartered Wellness

I'm just going to address the elephant in the room right away: I realize half the population hates cilantro with a fiery passion, so feel free to omit it from this salad - it will still be delicious.

This salad tastes like summer in a bowl. The melon and cucumber are refreshing and juicy, and the herbs give it a deliciously fresh note. With hot weather showing no signs of going away any time soon, it's the perfect dish for when you're too sweaty to cook anything.
