This quick and colorful watermelon salad is packed with fresh fruits and perfect to cool down on hot summer evenings. Aside from juicy watermelon slices, the recipe includes cherry tomatoes and blue grapes, which add a burst of deep, rich sweetness.

If possible, use grapes and tomatoes that had a chance to ripen in the sun for a true taste of summer. A lime vinaigrette with grapeseed oil adds zest to this light salad, while fresh mint leaves bring a fresh kick throughout. I like to top this dish with mozzarella, but you could swap in crumbled feta or even ricotta cheese if you prefer.
