Tomato and Watermelon Salad  

Summer blesses us with some of the tastiest heirloom tomatoes, in a rainbow of colors. Ripe sweet watermelons of every shape, color and size abound. This Tomato and Watermelon Salad is a favorite with my students with or without cheese. Growing up in a French Canadian Family, we would always sprinkle salt on watermelon and other fruits to accentuate their flavor. Similar to other cultures, many add both salt and chili to their fruit. Come to find out, sweet and savory are very refreshing and delicious. When I eat this salad, I know summer is in full swing. Share this simple recipe with your family and friends, it will instantly become a summer favorite.  
 

Tomato and Watermelon Salad
Serves 8
This is a perfect summer salad when local watermelons and heirloom tomatoes are at their peak of flavor. Experiment using heirloom watermelons in different colors like orange and yellow. I also like to use a variety of heirloom tomatoes in exciting colors to create a rainbow of colors in this perfect salad.
