Frequently Asked Questions
Why deseed, salt and drain the cucumbers?
Scooping the seeds, and then salting and draining the cucumbers helps to season and firm up the cucumbers. This will also prevent the salad from becoming too watery.
Can I make this vegan?
You may substitute the fish sauce with vegan fish sauce for a completely vegan watermelon salad.
