A light and tangy combination of watermelon, tomato and mint creating a delicious combination of sweet, sour and salty flavors. While the melon should be chilled, the other ingredients are their most flavorful at room temperature, so combine the salad just before serving.

I was a bit hesitant of this unusual combination of ingredients but I was pleasantly surprised! I'm a big fan of fresh fruit and veggies and this recipe sounded just different enough to work. It is such a fresh salad perfect for a summer picnic. If you like the sweet-salty combination then I think you will like this. The fresh mint is the key ingredient in my opinion. I could only find red tomatoes so I used those but I really wanted a color contrast. I found some tomatillos and decided to give that a try. The tart flavor of the tomatillos turned out to be a great addition. Read More

I did not add the salt and used fresh mint and basil. No other seasonings - it was very good - it was a refreshing hit. Read More

What a surprise! I was mostly curious about the flavors coming together and was surprised that they came together very well! I used red onion because I didn t read the recipe well and it was too strong and I sliced them too thick. My fault. Also my store doesn t carry heirloom tomatoes but I think you really want them or you can t tell the watermelon from the tomatoes. Read More

Didn't have heritage tomatoes. Used standard very ripe ones instead. Made sure to de-seed them before adding. Also added peeled and de-seeded japanese cucumber. Just before serving, I added a dressing of olive oil, sherry vinegar and chilli flakes. Make sure you season well with salt and lots of black pepper. The whole bowl was demolished in minutes. A winner! Read More
