Memorial Day Weekend means the unofficial start of summer, and what says summer better than a sweet, red, juicy watermelon? We’re adding a touch of sophistication to watermelon and turning it into a sweet and savory salad. Tomato and watermelon are great sources of the breast cancer fighting antioxidant lycopene, as well as Vitamin C. Eat this melon to save your own melons ; )
Pass on the mayonaise filled potato salad and bring a big bowl of this refreshing Tomato and Watermelon Salad to your Memorial Day BBQ!

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
