Reader Guest Post: Cucumber Fruit Salad

This post was contributed by a Fancy Nonsense reader and friend “Crystal the Pistol”. She is a mother of 2 with another one on the way, an interior design genius and sweet neighbor. I hope we see more of her recipes and projects here soon.

I love this cucumber salad because there is the sweetness of the fruit with the added green and seriousness of the cucumber. It’s like the cucumber grows the fruit salad up and makes it a bit more complex.

cucumber fruit salad

1 cantaloupe
1 watermelon (small seedless)
1 lb. strawberries
6 cocktail cucumbers
1/2 lbs blueberries

Cut all fruit into bite size pieces except the blueberries. Toss the fruit together then mix in the blueberries.

**A little crumble of feta cheese would make this great for a happy hour spread.

This salad also pairs well with a Cabernet wine spritzer which you can make by combining 1 part Cabernet to 1 part favorite sparkling water, add ice and sip!

If you are interested in learning other fun cucumber recipes I found this book over on amazon!

Here is Crystal and her family. Aren’t they adorable?

    Yum! I love cucumbers. I bet they add a nice crisp balance to the sweet fruit.
