Watermelon, Heirloom Tomato and Goat Cheese Salad

This is the recipe many of you requested at the Taste of the Season - Tomatoes! The original recipe was from


2 small chilies, thinly sliced (optional)
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar (balsamic is a nice alternative, from Mediterra)
3 tablespoons olive oil (Mediterra)
salt and pepper

1/4 watermelon, sliced into 1/4 inch thick pieces
2 heirloom tomatoes (or 3 regular tomatoes) cut 1/4 inch thick
1/2 cup goat cheese, sliced into small chunks (or feta from Fulper Family Farmstead)
1/3 cup thinly sliced shallot (or mild onion)
1/4 basil, thinly chiffonade
2 tablespoons mint, thinly chiffonade



Combine the chilies, vinegar, olive oil, and a big pinch of salt and pepper in a small container and mix to form a vinaigrette.  Put the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl and pour the vinaigrette over it. Let the bowl sit in the fridge for 1 hour, then serve.  Enjoy!
