This summer I am all about the recipes that you can barely call *recipes*! Case and point - this watermelon salad with heirloom tomatoes and lime. So simple that most of the ingredients are in the title ;)
The other day I was in the grocery store and I saw alllll the melons, so many kinds! Half of them I hadn’t even seen before. I loaded up on all my favs - just so juicy, sweet, and refreshing! Do you have a favourite?! Gimme a perfectly ripe cantaloupe and super sweet ‘n juicy watermelon and I am SET.
What better thing to pair an intensely sweet watermelon with than one of summer’s other beauty - heirloom tomatoes! I will never get over how gorgeous these are!
Not only is this salad super easy to prepare, it’s gluten free, vegan, paleo , raw, and whole30 - so it really is the most perfect thing to bring to a summer get together where you know there may be differing food preferences! It’s a win win you guys! Tasty and all-eater friendly!
Hope you enjoy this summer in salad form!
