Watermelon, Tomato & Goat Cheese Salad

By on September 10, 2015

I plant tomatoes every summer except for this summer… Life got busy and much to my dismay I never got a garden planted.  However I was surprised by a whole garden of  volunteer tomato plants that popped up in my garden bed.  While we have a couple of red tomato plants, most are little yellow pear tomatoes.  We love those little yellow gems!  They are good to just pop in your mouth but I love to use them in salads as well.

This watermelon tomato salad may seem like an odd mixture but it is a favorite.  The combination of flavors is so yummy and refreshing. I used the little yellow pear tomatoes for color and because I had an abundance of them in my garden.  Chilling the salad before serving enhances the flavors even more.

1 cup of cherry tomatoes sliced in half

2 oz of Goat Cheese, crumbled

Drizzled balsamic vinaigrette on top and toos gentle.

Chill and enjoy!
