Tomato and Watermelon Salad

Tomato and Watermelon Salad

I don’t know about you but I love fruit in a salad. Some well known classics are pear, walnut and blue cheese, fennel and orange and of course the famous waldorf salad. I love the combination of sweet and savoury and this tomato and watermelon salad is no different. Perhaps this combination isn’t as well known as others but goodness me it works so well. A perfect summery lunch, a side dish to grilled fish or meat. You really have to give this simple recipe a go. To make it more of a main course the addition of feta or fried halloumi works well too. Enjoy!
