Watermelon Cucumber Cups are a fun appetizer or salad for your summer entertaining. The sweet watermelon, salty feta, and lemony dressing all come together in a fun presentation called Watermelon Cucumber Cups.
Watermelon and cucumbers are both a part of the Cucurbitaceae family that includes squash and gourds too. Both cucumbers and watermelon are high in water content, which is perfect for helping keep hydrated during the hot summer months when they are at their peak. Cucumbers are also a good source of potassium and vitamin K while watermelon provides vitamins A and C and a nice dose of lycopene as well.
If you don’t feel like making the cups, you can always chop up the cucumbers and add them to the watermelon and feta for a salad.
