Everyone loves something different all the time when it comes to food and you don’t want to bore your guests with the same regular salad that you always make! I feel like food always sets the mood for what you are trying to entertain to your guests. With that said, if you are sitting at home wondering what to serve at your dinner or cute luncheon – you definitely need to give this recipe a try!
As you are presenting this salad to your guests, give them a brief introduction explaining how tomatoes and watermelons are at their best time right now because it is their season. Talk about the ingredients that you put in the salad to layer its flavors and bring out the sweetness of the delicious tomatoes and watermelon. Tell them that the mint adds a refreshing touch while the balsamic glaze and goat cheese balance out the dish with their tartness. Your guests will think they are sitting in a fine dining restaurant!
