I got this recipe from my friend, Pia, who has a wonderful blog with tons of ethnic recipes, particularly Filipino since she is from the Philippines. Now, I know what you were thinking when you read the title of this post. You’re wrong! Watermelons and tomatoes CAN be put together in a salad–and it is delicious! This salad is sweet, salty, acidic, tangy, and is so refreshing. You will love it.
Watermelon & Tomato Salad
5 cups seedless watermelon, cut into cubes
1/2 lb. tomatoes, seeded and diced
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 medium red onion, thinly julienned
freshly ground black pepper
chopped cilantro for garnish
In a large bowl mix chopped watermelon and tomatoes. Stir in sugar and salt and place in fridge to marinate for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, mix in red wine vinegar, olive oil and onions. Keep chilled.
When ready to serve add freshly ground black pepper and garnish with chopped cilantro.
