This refreshing salad is perfect for picnics and cookouts. It takes advantage of two of summer’s best produce options – watermelon and tomatoes! Served with fresh herbs, red wine vinegar, sliced almonds and feta cheese, the unlikely combination is full of flavor and low in calories.

4 cups fresh tomatoes, cubed
1 tsp coarse salt (such as kosher salt or sea salt)
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 ½ Tbsp red wine vinegar
¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
2 Tbsp fresh mint, chopped
¼ cup sliced almonds
½ cup feta cheese

  2. In a small bowl, combine vinegar, olive oil and basil. Mix together, then pour over the watermelon and tomato mixture.
  3. Top with sliced almonds and feta cheese.
  4. Serve chilled.
