Our today’s Watermelon Cucumber Salad with colored coconut flakes is my summer and iftar special salad. This salad is refreshing and rejuvenating.
As this time, the glorious month of Ramadan falls during Summer, it is important to include fruits in your meal plan. Though I love trying out different drinks and salads during summer, fresh cut fruits have their own special charm.
