Sweet & Sour Watermelon Cucumber
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar, to taste
1 tbsp poppy seeds
Salt and pepper to taste
1 bunch shallots, trimmed and chopped
3 cups watermelon balls, seedless
2 English cucumbers, peeled, seeded and sliced
Mix vinegar, water, sugar and poppy seeds in a bowl and season. Stir in shallots. Place watermelon and cucumber in a serving bowl and pour the marinade on top. Serve immediately (or cover and refrigerate, then toss gently before serving). For extra effect, serve in half of a hollowed-out watermelon.
Serves 8 to 10.
