Indian Tomato Watermelon Salad

Tomatoes, watermelon and feta are an all-time summer favorite of mine.

The flavors are meant to be together, you know…kind of like PB&J.

The watermelon is so juicy and mixed with sweet and tangy tomatoes is like HEAVEN.

Of course I had to Indianfy this recipe..duh. You can replace the feta with fresh paneer and pile on  the heat! Fresh chilies in this would be supper good too! 

Also, I’ve added turmeric oil and chili powder to lift up all the ingredients and give them a little zing! 

I saw that Bon Appetit posted a similar recipe and used coconut oil instead of olive oil, which sounds amazing! Although, I think a little sesame oil would be nice too! 

This time I went ahead and used good quality olive oil, but as always, experiment, do your own thing!

Picture yourself on a patio with a limey margarita this watermelon salad and some sunshine.

Got the picture?

NOW, go make it!

So fresh and yummy. It’s like summer on your plate. Love the colors. And I have to say that watermelon is one fruit that mixes very well with tomatoes.

I love how you named this dish! It does look like a really tasty and refreshing salad. I am making this on Saturday. I think this salad would go well with barbequed ribs. 🙂

Now this seems like something fun for a summer BBQ side dish! Sweet and tangy cheese goes well together, and with the spices sounds delish!

This definitely looks so good! And healthy! But I honestly have not tried watermelons and tomatoes together.
