Kraft Kitchens Tips

Buying Watermelon
Already cut-up watermelon, often in quarters or halves, can be found in most produce markets or in the produce section of larger supermarkets.
Special Extra
Summer is known for great farmers' markets! And they're a great place to find a wide variety of colorful tomatoes. Use them when preparing this tasty salad.
Make Ahead
Prepare dressing mixture and refrigerate in covered plastic container. Prepare fruit and vegetables as directed; store in separate resealable plastic bags. Refrigerate until ready to assemble.
