Tomato-Watermelon Salad

Serves: 6
Time: 5 minutes

This sweet-and-savory summer salad may seem simple, but its flavors are plenty sophisticated. Use the best in-season tomatoes, watermelon, and herbs you can find and then, of course, pick up the premium oil, vinegar, and seasoning at Olive Tree. Serve this as a refreshing first course or with grilled fish or shrimp for a healthy and satisfying meal.

6 cups seedless watermelon, cut into 1-inch chunks
6 cups ripe tomatoes, cored, and cut into 1-inch chunks
2 teaspoons Olive Tree Sea Salt
1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
¼ cup shelled pistachios 
3 tablespoons Olive Tree Premium Jalapeno Olive Oil
3 tablespoons Olive Tree Premium White Lemon Balsamic Vinegar
3 tablespoons torn basil (or chives or mint)

Directions: Arrange watermelon and tomatoes on a large serving platter. Sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and pistachios, then evenly drizzle the olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the watermelon and tomatoes. Garnish with the basil. Serve immediately or refrigerate covered for up to one hour.
