Watermelon Tomato Salad

Between my Costco trip last weekend, our garden, and this huge batch of tomatoes delivered in our farm box today, we’re overflowing with tomatoes!

I needed to use some up quick with dinner and was craving something cool and hydrating since today’s high was 106 degrees of dry heat. I decided to experiment with a sweet and spicy meal salad using watermelon, my favorite fruit and so perfect on a hot summer day. This salad is a little daring with spicy chili paste, but it’s also sweet and refreshing while being hearty and filling with the addition of chopped tempeh.

I used Amore Chili Pepper Paste, it’s vegan friendly and stores in the fridge for a long time which is good because a little goes a long way.

The salad is a colorful work of refreshing art, perfect after a hot day.

The tomatoes and watermelon add a cool and crisp texture while the herbs and chili paste slide in flare.
