Simple Melon and Cucumber Salad

simple melon and cucumber saladOur son is still home from his Navy school, and I am still trying to get him to eat better. Hope this translates into better eating when he goes back! I was grilling a steak tonight, and wanted a simple, quick side dish to throw together after work. This salad definitely fit the bill! My husband described it as a good combination of sweet and sour. It is very low calorie, too.
