Heirloom Tomato and Watermelon Salad

I can only take credit for recreating this dish because I hoisted it directly from Tami at Running with Tweezers. It just looked so refreshing and I happened to have all the ingredients on hand. (I wish I could find those green zebra tomatoes she had) This is a visually stunning salad and the sweet tomatoes and watermelon meld together quite nicely. It reminded me that salt tastes great with watermelon.

Heirloom Tomato and Watermelon Salad
Tomatoes
Watermelon
Goat Cheese
Basil Leaves
Salt/pepper
Olive Oil

Put everything together on a plate. Sprinkle with salt & pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
I am categorizing this in both salad and dessert because it could really be the handsome beginning or end of any summer meal.

Just out of sheer curiosity, I am going to have to try this out. Watermelon and tomatoes with salt and oil? The combination seems odd to me but I totally trust your judgment. I'm having a BBQ on Saturday for work so I'll test it out then.

I love this salad. The flavours play off against each other so well!
