A GREAT "PEAK OF SUMMER" SALAD

Two farm fresh items are at their peak . . .
watermelons and tomatoes.

And their combination makes a fantastic summer salad.

Cut up a plump watermelon, medium pieces
(still warm from the field) . . .
grab some vine ripened tomatoes (red and yellow),
add a green one too, for color . . .
core and chop into bite-size pieces . . .
toss with chunks of goat cheese and fresh basil.
Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil,
and VOILA!

The combination is fantastic,
and a celebration of the best of a late summer harvest.
