Fresh Tomato & Watermelon Salad

Nothing says summer like a refreshing watermelon and tomato salad. Make this ahead of time and pack up to serve alongside the rest of your favorite picnic items.
Yields: 4 servings

1/4 watermelon
24 red and yellow cherry tomatoes, cut in half
4 cups watercress
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper

Use a melon baller to make a handful of watermelon balls.
Place them in a bowl with the tomatoes and watercress.
In a small bowl mix together olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Pour the dressing over the salad, mix and serve. You may also want to add the dressing once you arrive at your picnic destination but it’s up to you!
