Earlier this fall I started thinking about watermelon salads. There are many favorite recipes around, many variations, but I wanted to try something different. How does Black Bean, Tomato, Watermelon Salad sound? A little strange? Maybe, but if you’ll trust me on this one and try it, you’ll find that it’s an easy salad to make, tastes good, and goes well with nearly any type of grilled fish, meat or poultry you may be serving.
I created this recipe myself, but in the interest of full disclosure, after I created it I did a quick internet search to check myself and see if it would be too crazy a combination. I found a similar recipe (with fewer ingredients) over at the Sylvia’s Kitchen blog, and therefore would like to give her recognition since I am apparently not the first to recommend the combination of black beans and watermelon in a salad.
