Cucumber Melon Spa Salad

This light, refreshing, juicy salad is not only healthy but perfect to stave off the summer heat. Spiralized cucumber noodles provide a bed for mixed melon balls, lightly dressed in a grapeseed oil mint dressing. Should a spiralizer not be available, the cucumber may be cut into any desirable shape; thinly sliced, cut into matchsticks or thin shavings with a peeler. No matter what the shape, the salad will be delicious!
