Fresh, juicy watermelon is back for the season! That means plenty of fresh-pressed watermelon water and this salad, featuring cherry tomatoes, red onion and radishes to balance the natural sweetness of the star of the dish.
I like to create this simple salad for a summer barbecue or whenever I get my hands on these ingredients from my local farmer’s market.
- 1 mini watermelon
- 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 red onion
- 1/2 bunch radishes
- 1 handful mint leaves, cut into ribbons
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- Salt and pepper
Cut watermelon into approximately 1-inch cubes and add to a bowl.
Slice cherry tomatoes in half and add to the watermelon.
Thinly slice red onion and radishes, and toss with the watermelon and tomato.
In a small bowl, whisk red wine vinegar and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Pour dressing into the salad bowl, gently toss and serve with ribbons of mint sprinkled on top.
