Tomato Watermelon Salad with Ginger Scallion Dressing

Nothing beats a giant bowl of icy cold, sweet, watermelon and the ripest, juiciest, heirloom tomatoes. My twist on the classic tomato watermelon salad includes a spicy ginger scallion dressing and loads of fresh herbs to brighten everything up. Perfect for a summer picnic or when it’s so hot all you want to do is stick your head in the freezer. This is quintessential summer eating.
