Watermelon and tomato salad

The weather has been so hot lately, that I keep trying to find new, cool foods.
What's cooler to eat than watermelon!  I paired it with tomatoes and a few other ingredients.  Went great with grilled chicken and corn.

Watermelon and Tomato Salad


6 cups cubed watermelon
1 pint grape tomatoes, sliced in half
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons chopped, fresh cilantro

Dressing:
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons honey or agave nectar
1 tablespoon grape seed or olive oil

Place the watermelon, tomatoes, onion, and cilantro in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, mix together the lime juice, kosher salt, pepper, honey.  Slowly whisk in the oil.  Pour over the watermelon and tomato mixture.  Toss to mix well.  Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour and as much as 24 hours (the longer the better, since the flavors get a chance to meld.)
Serve cold and enjoy!
