Stay cool with crisp and refreshing cucumbers. We picked the ripest meals that feature this classic summer vegetable.

4 - cups watermelon cut into 1-inch cubes
2 - cups cucumber, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch crescents
2 - serrano chiles, thinly sliced*
2 - tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 - tablespoon yuzu juice or fresh lime juice
1 - tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 - teaspoon lime zest
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 - cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 - cup fresh mint leaves, torn

On a large platter arrange watermelon cubes surrounded by a ring of cucumber slices with curved sides out. Place serrano chiles on cucumber.

In a small bowl mix the olive oil, yuzu juice, balsamic vinegar, lime zest, and salt and black pepper to taste with a fork.
Drizzle the dressing over mixture on platter. Top with feta and fresh mint just before serving.

Chile peppers contain oils that can irritate your skin and eyes. Wear plastic or rubber gloves when working with them.
