Cucumber Salad with Honeydew Melon & Burrata

Say hello to your new go-to summer salad! Paired with sweet melon and peppery arugula, this cucumber salad is gorgeously green. The burrata scattered over the top adds creamy texture. Serve it alongside anything from the grill—chicken or salmon would be particularly nice with it, or enjoy it on its own as a light meal with crusty bread.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
