Heirloom Tomato and Melon Salad

Heirloom Tomato and Melon Salad

Serves 6 to 8

Use any ripe heirloom tomatoes in this scrumptious summer salad, but we especially love varieties like Evergreen for a nice color contrast to the red and orange melon. A single hot chile pepper in the dressing delivers a nice kick without overwhelming the other flavors; feel free to use more or less. Serve with grilled fish or alongside other picnic favorites.

  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 hot chile pepper, such as serrano, seeded and minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 cups diced seedless watermelon
  • 3 cups diced cantaloupe
  • 1 pound green-striped, yellow or other heirloom tomatoes, chopped
