Summer salad

This has to be THE quintessential summer salad. Sweet watermelon, vine-ripened tomatoes and juicy strawberries, on top of melt-in-your-mouth burrata, sprinkled with fresh herbs and pine nuts. It is simply delicious. I make extra so I can have leftovers for breakfast.

Fast and easy

Summer is not the time to be slaving away in the kitchen. This salad is made in 15 minutes start to finish. No need to turn on the oven!

Inspired by Andrew Weil's True Food recipe

I was inspired to make this salad after eating a similar one at True Food, that combines red and yellow watermelon, heirloom  and cherry tomatoes, goat cheese and cashews. I use the same simple dressing that they use at True Foods, made with white balsamic vinegar and olive oil.  Andrew Weil's cookbook, True Food: Seasonal, Sustainable, Simple and Pure includes their recipe for Watermelon and Tomato salad as well as a host of other great, fresh and flavorful recipes.

 

I admire what they are doing at True Foods. After I have eaten there I feel I have done something good for my body. Isn't that the way it should always be after a meal?

Tip

Use kitchen shears to cut strips of mint. This method prevents bruising.

Variations

There are lots of variations on this salad. Use whatever is in season and flavorful. When peaches are in their prime, they make a great addition to this addictive salad.

      Hi Tricia — I admit I have been making this 2-3 times a week with all the great fruit and tomatoes now in season. It takes 10 minutes to put together if you dawdle and with the buratta it is soooo good. I do eat the leftovers for breakfast. Be sure to make it while the fruit and tomatoes are in season!

    Kim, this salad was fabulous! Had all the kids for dinner and they LOVED it! The burrata was such a nice touch and I liked how it was on the bottom so the fruit and veggies still looked so clean and crisp!! I will be making this often!!!

    1. Kim says:

      Hi Jamie,
      We love this salad too. You can use a variety of fruits and tomatoes and it is always great. I can make an entire meal of it. Glad your family enjoyed it!

    Kim,
    I had the wonderful chicken thighs from the Jerusalem cookbook which you modified for Easter dinner. Finicky sons ate a lot and James even took left overs home for today’s lunch. Matt who refuses to eat chicken had three servings in spite of himself(in all honesty he was starving from doing yard clean up but admitted he might like chicken this way only). Just saying you are marvelous and keep up the good work! Cindy

    1. Kim says:

      Hi Cindy —

      So glad your family enjoyed the recipe. Who knew ouzo could be so good?

    I’m for sure making this for the upcoming get together. It’s so delicious xo
