My sister from TN prepared this salad years ago and loved it! It's so refreshing and addicting. This salad is a must during summertime!
5 cups seedless watermelon diced
1/2 lbs. tomatoes seeded and diced
2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
1 medium red onions julienned thinly
cilantro or basil or parsley for garnish
In a large bowl mix chopped watermelon and tomatoes.
Marinate with sugar and salt for 15 minutes.
Put in the refrigerator to chill.
After 15 minutes mix in red wine vinegar, olive oil and onions.
When ready to serve add freshly ground black pepper and garnish with chopped cilantro or basil or parsley. I have tried both cilantro and basil. I like both and i know parsley will taste good with the salad too, so you choose.
