Tomato and Watermelon Salad

Tomato and Watermelon Salad

Made for G's lab party. Was great change from watermelon feta salad and next day blended with 1/2 serrano & jalapeno pepper for quick gazpacho. Nom nom!!

  • Yield: 6 servings


  • 1 container(s) yellow cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 container(s) red grape tomatoes (8oz) halved
  • 1 English cucumber seeded, 1/2 peeled, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
  • 1 small seedless watermelon cut into 3/4 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoon(s) mixed fresh herbs: basil, (tarragon), mint, parsley minced
  • 1/3 cup(s) extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon(s) fresh lemon juice
  • 1-2 tablespoon(s) rice vinegar add to taste
  • dash(es) kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Combine fruit and veggies together, though if not serving right away, combine only the tomatoes and cucumber and keep watermelon separate and chilled until ready to serve. Put oil, lemon juice and vinegar to taste in jar with herbs. Shake until combined. Taste to adjust acid/oil and season with salt and pepper. When ready to serve toss all ingredients together.

Suggestion to add avocado cubes to salad

If have leftovers and want to reinvent for a different take on gazpacho, combine leftovers (not sure if avocado would do well) add parsley and jalapeno or serrano pepper in blender and whirl to desired consistency... Yum!
