Tomato and Watermelon Salad

President's Choice, 08 Jul, 2016
  • Tomato and Watermelon Salad
Bursting with flavour, this fresh tomato-watermelon salad can also be served over a bed of mixed greens. Big juicy chunks of tomato and watermelon deliver lots of gusto, but to prevent large bits of red onion from taking over, cut a whole red onion in quarters before thinly slicing.
