Watermelon, Tomato and Cheese Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kumquat the Cats fr

What's the watermelon doing in this recipe? That's what I asked myself too, but it's an awfully good combination! I've made this several times, and it's based off of a recipe I cut out of the NY Times a while ago. Really nice for a spring or summer side dish.

I made this exactly as posted and unless the cilantro rather than parsley makes a HUGE difference this was NOT GOOD. At best it's ok. Tomato and watermelon just don't go together.
