Watermelon & Tomato Salad

At Nod, we believe your home should be a celebration of family. We'll be featuring our Managing Director, Michelle, at home celebrating her own family with recipes, crafts and décor created by our friend Sweet Paul

I love to have a simple yet interesting go-to summer salad recipe each year.  This year I’m thrilled by the combination of herbaceous fresh tomatoes coupled with supremely sweet watermelon.  The simple dressing of lemon juice and oil brightens everything up into a salad that sings!  Bring it to your next potluck barbecue and I’m SURE you’ll be going home with an empty bowl!
