Watermelon and Tomato Salad June 3, 2012

I participated in a recipe swap where the theme was summer salads. I made the following salad and it was a hit. It was out at dinner and left out for dessert. It worked well for both courses. The only change I made was using the plain feta and skipping the onion entirely.

Summer Salad

Serves 6 -8 people

Ingredients
1 8oz package of tomato/basil feta cheese crumbled or you can use plain feta cheese if you can’t find it
4 cups of tomatoes cut into chunks (I use different colors / kinds, yellow heirloom, some grape tomatoes, you can use whatever kind you like)
¼ cup of fresh basil shredded
2 cups of watermelon chopped
1 cup of strawberries sliced
1 red onion sliced thin
½ teaspoon salt
3 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp of olive oil

Directions:
1. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar and salt set aside.
2. In a large mixing bowl add tomatoes, cheese, basil, watermelon, strawberries and onion. Gently toss together.
3. Pour vinegar mixture on top of salad and gently toss. Refrigerate for  at least one hour serve cold.
