Tomato Medley, Watermelon & Strawberry Salad

last week in mexico,  aside from avocado and guacamole, i lived off of tomatoes and watermelon.  they were delicious, refreshing, kept me hydrated {after dehydrating myself on mojitos} and now i'm missing them terribly.

so when i was planning our saturday BBQ i knew i had to find a way to incorporate them.

so combined with some strawberries a little balsamic dressing and tarragon i made a refreshing salad that not only tasted great but was pretty pleasing on the eyes as well.
