Refreshing Watermelon Tomato Salad

The weather earlier this week was insane! You want to talk about a scorcher?  I thought that I was back working Coachella! Thank goodness I could jump in a pool to cool off. 😉 I wish that I had this salad to cool me down from the inside out, though.

I was inspired by a salad that I had years ago, with watermelon, tomato, mint, and feta, plus some vegetarian roe for a salty kick. This one is slightly different, with creamy pine nuts changing up the texture, and a combination of mint and basil to make it interesting (and pretty!).

The best part about this salad is that it comes together in mere minutes. If you chill the tomato and watermelon before assembly it works out even better. This is the perfect side for a summer party, BBQ or as a light snack. Throw a little white balsamic vinegar on there and call it a day!

  1. Beautiful and refreshing salad, can’t wait to harvest my homegrown heirloom tomatoes. Love the addition of pine nuts.

  2. I have to admit that I don’t like watermelon. But it does sound great in a salad. Maybe you made me finally like it!

  3. This is an oldie but a goldy! It is a classical refreshing salad & added vegan feta is even better!
