Watermelon and Heirloom Tomato Salad

I'm still here, folks! Just been super busy again with these Summer Festivals!! Here's a quick and super tasty salad that is really refreshing!

Watermelon and Heirloom Tomato Salad
  • 3 large Heirloom tomatoes, chopped (about 4 cups)
  • 4 cups watermelon, cubed
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 2-3 Tbsp lemon juice (juice of 1 lemon)
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
Combine ingredients and allow to chill for at least an hour. That's it!

Garnish with basil sprig. This makes a big salad, about 8-10 servings, so cut it in half if ya need to.

We had it with fettuccine with pesto and a cucumber salad.
