Watermelon Vinaigrette Recipe
The original recipe by Suzanne Goin included a complete Watermelon and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese onto which the vinaigrette is drizzled. The salad is nothing more complicated than tossing together sliced tomatoes, watermelon, crumbled feta cheese, sliced shallots, and shredded mint.
The vinaigrette works, of course, with just about any combination of summer produce, especially strong/bitter greens.

Summer Summer Summer! So true! Summer was terrible where I live though. :(( moist and coolish with temperatures reaching 82°F at the very best and usually being around 68. Big boohooo. Those slices of watermelon on your picture look just so fresh, cool and juicy! jealous. ;)
Its about 40C outside, and i wish i could have some of this...sounds just perfect!
