Have you tried watermelons and tomatoes yet? It’s surprisingly good and with the addition of white balsamic dressing the salad won’t get muddy from the regular balsamic. I made this salad recently when we had a houseful over Labor Day weekend. This Watermelon-Tomato Salad was a hit; there weren’t even any leftovers!Watermelon-Tomato Salad


This Watermelon-Tomato Salad is the perfect summertime salad. It is light and refreshing and the salty, sharp bite of the pecorino Romano chees is delicious. I can’t think of a more perfect salad to serve during the warm weather.  this salad also travels well if you are asked to bring a salad to your next gathering.Watermelon-Tomato Salad

If you want to make this recipe ahead of time, add everything but the watermelon. Add the watermelon just before serving. As I said this Watermelon-Tomato Salad was delicious and perfect for a gathering with friends.

Watermelon and tomatoes are two summer favorites. The whole salad sounds delicious – I might use Feta 🙂
