This Tomato and Watermelon Salad is such a delicious summertime treat. This is such a light delicious treat that is the perfect end to a really beautiful hot summer day. I love to grab a bowl and sit out on my front porch in my rocking chair. Either with a glass of Raspberry Iced Tea or Apple Pie Iced Tea. There is no sweeter place I want to be than on my porch rocking in my chair after a long hot day.
For me, this salad is the perfect reason to visit my local farmers market. For some of you, hopefully, it is a good use of some delicious garden treats.
Delicious Tomato and Watermelon Salad is the perfect summer salad. Delicious combination of sweet crisp flavors mixed with the saltiness of feta cheese.
- 3 cup Tomatoes
- 3 cup Watermelon chunks
- 1/2 Cucumber
- 6 0z Herbed feta cheese
- 1/8 cup Olive oil
- 1/4 cup Red wine vinegar
- Fresh chopped basil
- Salt to taste
Begin by slicing a variety of different tomatoes into small wedges. You will need 3 cups total. The visual appeal of this salad is better when using a variety of shapes and colors of tomatoes. Place the sliced tomatoes into a large mixing or serving bowl.
Slice the watermelon chunks into smaller pieces, and add them to the bowl with the sliced tomatoes.
Cut ½ of a cucumber into small chunks, and add those to the mixing bowl as well.
Pour 6 ounces of herbed feta cheese into the mixture, and combine well.
Into a small bowl, pour the olive oil.
Add the red wine vinegar into the small bowl with the olive oil, and whisk to combine them well.
Pour the mixed vinaigrette over the tomato and watermelon mixture in the large mixing/serving bowl, and toss to combine.
Sprinkle some fresh chopped basil onto the salad and add salt to taste if desired.
