Tomato Watermelon Salad with Gorgonzola

Popular recently, the flavors of the sweet watermelon, acidic tomato and salty cheese go amazingly well together to make a perfect summer salad.

Julian's Tomato and Watermelon Salad
The success of the dish of course depends on having the very best and most flavorful local ingredients. If you can't get them, better to make something else or substitute as necessary.

1 part fresh rip tomatoes
1 part fresh sweet seedless watermelon
fresh basil leaves
crumbled Gorgonzola or Feta cheese
Extra virgin olive oil
Balsamic vinegar reduction
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Clean and cut the tomatoes and watermelon into equally sized pieces. Wash and dry the fresh basil leaves. Place the tomatoes, melon and basil in a serving dish. Sprinkle with the cheese. Drizzle a little olive oil and Balsamic vinegar reduction over the salad and top with a pinch of salt and a couple grinds of fresh black pepper.
