My friend Lisa gave was the inspiration for this salad. She commented on an earlier post about a watermelon salad that she makes and I went with what I had. I have no shortage of cherry tomatoes, they come up every year on their own in one of my flower beds and I just let them grow freely.
I cut cherry tomatoes in half, salted them and added a splash of olive oil and fig flavored balsamic vinegar, chopped fresh basil and one clove of garlic. I then added some chopped watermelon in an equal proportion to the tomatoes and topped it all with freshly grated Piave Vecchio.
This was a great salad to pair with the pasta. I really love using watermelon this way and would never have thought of it before.
