Now you can take advantage of tomatoes and watermelon at the same time.  This salad is amazingly refreshing.

Serves 4 - 6

 

5 cups ripe, bite-sized watermelon* chunks, seeded as best you can, but don't go

crazy

1 1/2 pounds very ripe tomatoes*, finely chunked

3 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 small red* or sweet yellow onion*, peeled, quartered, and thinly sliced

1/2 cup red wine vinegar

1/4 cup good, strong-flavored extra-virgin olive oil

 

Toss the melon and tomatoes with the sugar and salt.  Let sit for 15 minutes.  Then fold in the onions, vinegar, and oil.  Serve very cold.
