If I didn't have a food blog, I would never have thought of this winning combination.
Watermelon just goes so well w/ salty things like feta cheese, olives and tomatoes.
Here I paired watermelon chunks w/ yellow tomatoes from my garden with some black olives, lime zest and fresh herbs for a delicious, refreshing summer salad.
Watermelon & Tomato Salad:
1 seedless watermelon, cut into 1" cubes
1 basket of yellow cherry tomatoes, halved
handful of kalamata olives, cut into slivers
handful of fresh basil leaves, cut into chiffonade
handful of fresh mint leaves, cut into chiffonade
zest of 1 lime
sprinkle of kosher salt
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese (optional)
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, tossing lightly. Add the vinegar and oil and sprinkle with feta cheese, if using.
Best served chilled. Can be made 2 hours in advance.
Keepin' it cool.
