Watermelon and Tomato Salad
If you haven’t had a tomato and watermelon salad, you’re in for a treat. It’s a creamy, sweet, and savory party in your mouth! 🍅🍉
Ami isn’t a fan of tomatoes, but the amazing thing that happens with this salad – you can’t tell the difference between the tomatoes and the watermelon.
We played a game where I had her close her eyes and I’d put a combo of ingredients in her mouth and have her guess what I put in there.
#1 – She couldn’t decipher the 🍉 from the 🍅
#2 – She thought it was a fun game and
#3 - She ate her whole bowl of salad (including the tomatoes “she hates”)!
