      Great salad. I added 1/4 of jalapeno( shaved),diced kalamata olives, cubed feta cheese and chopped mint. I loved the dressing, goes well with this salad. Thank you.

      Interesting salad, I love using watermelon in savory things. I like all of these ingredients very much and they go well together. I found the avocado got a little lost, as we're big avo fans I'd probably use 2 next time. I like the dressing, but I think next time I'd use a white balsamic or something lighter, one for a milder flavour and two, to retain the beautiful colours. Served this at a family dinner and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks Chef Kate!

      I don't know how cooks cut up avocado into those perfect little cubes. That's why I didn't take a picture of the final product. I end up mashing the avocado beyond recognition. As other reviewers suggested, I also subbed white balsamic vinegar. It is refreshing, beautiful, colorful and very healthy! I used all the herbs suggested (from our garden!) and subbed party yellow watermelon for standard red. Next time I'll try heirloom tomatoes once I can a chance to pilfer some from my secret location. Thanks, Kate! Reviewed for Veg Tag/June.
