Watermelon Caprese Salad

A Sweet Twist on Caprese Salad

What can possibly top biting into a slice of watermelon so juicy that it threatens to drip down your chin? Not much, but this ultrasimple salad is a strong contender. Watermelon's subtly floral sweetness complements mozzarella's mild creaminess, and cherry tomatoes' tang (try orange Sweet 100s if you can find them; they're as lovely as their name implies). Add a drizzle of oil, vinegar, and a sprinkle of salt to tie it all together, and the resulting salad is pretty darn perfect.

For the best of both worlds, save a slice of watermelon for dessert!
