The quintessential summer salad with lots of lycopene. Tomatoes and watermelon are a match made in heaven! Perfect with grilled meat on a hot day! This is best served at room temperature. Dress the salad right before you eat it.

I love love love this recipe! You might not think it but the sweet of the watermelon pairs so well with the tomatoes. I used fresh tomatoes right from my garden and it was like a little taste of summer. I will definitely make this recipe again. Read More

I made it for a party and only made it a few minutes before. It was very watery. Everyone enjoyed it but I wasn't happy with the excess water and look of it. I hope to try it again with better results!! Read More

So I made this yesterday and I'm completely addicted to it!! I had been looking for more fruit/veggie salad recipes for easy quick family snacks to keep on hand and this is my new favorite!! I had to modify the recipe because I cannot eat feta because I'm pregnant so I cubed provolone I couldn't find white balsamic so I used regular and the grocery store was out of mint so I had to omit it. Also I just tossed the ingredients together and then stirred but I recommend whisking as suggested so you dont break up the fruit. I also dumped all the watermelon juice into the mix. The dressing is so wonderful and delicious we added some cold cooked pasta just because the juice/dressing is too amazing to waste. My husband was skeptical but I knew it would be great since I had seen similar salads while I was stationed in Sicily and this recipe did NOT disappoint! THANKS SO MUCH for posting this recipe- its my new family favorite Read More

I tasted after mixing up this salad and then added more vinegar but otherwise followed the directions. I was out of white balsamic so I used Trader Joe's orange muscat champagne vinegar which gave it a nice zing. For my own taste preference I will add more mint the next time but this is a nice and refreshing watermelon-tomato salad. Read More

We both like this unusual salad but it must be made with cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes. Read More
