Watermelon, Tomato And Goat Cheese Salad

There is something about watermelon that just screams out summer, and I must admit we tend to eat a lot of this refreshing melon all through the warmer months. I first heard about this salad recipe a couple of years back and intrigued I knew I had to give it a try. The combination of the sweet melon, ripe tomatoes, onions, and goat cheese is quite honestly rather amazing and I think once you give it a try you’ll find yourself craving this salad often just as I do. This is a lovely, unique salad to serve when entertaining outdoors, or to take on picnics or outdoor get togethers. In order to ensure the salad stays fresh and crisp, just make sure you do not add the dressing until just before you serve it.

Why Healthy

  • Tomatoes are rich in Lycopene, vitamin C, potassium, iron, and fiber.
