Grab one unpeeled cucumber and wash it properly. Wipe it dry and place it on your cutting board. Now, cut it into quarter and then cut it into equal medium slices.
Place the cucumber slices in a serving bowl and add in 1 cup of cubed melon of your choice.
Drizzle the dressing all over the cucumber-melon mixture and mix smoothly until thoroughly coated.
