Ricotta salata is a crumbly, salty cheese that provides a nice counterpoint to the sweetness of the watermelon and grapes. If you can't find it, you can use feta, which is more pungent but just as tasty.
Both cucumbers and watermelon have high water content, so eating this salad is a great way to stay hydrated.
