Yes they are!
One of our customers shared a recipe with me last week and I have to admit that it sounds like an odd combination but I was assured that it is wonderful and can't wait to try it. I'm going to pass it on to you so that you can add some items to your farmers market shopping list.
Watermelon Tomato Salad
5 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
1 pint grape or pear tomatoes
1 small red onion, chopped
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
¼ cup fresh basil, minced
2 tablespoons lime juice
Combine the watermelon, tomatoes and onion in a large bowl. Mix the parsley, basil and lime juice in a small bowl. Pour this over the watermelon mixture and toss. Refrigerate for one hour before serving.
Thank you Glenn for sharing one of your favorite market recipes!
The great part is you'll be able to find the watermelon, tomatoes, onion and basil at the market during the week!
