Farmers Market Find: Watermelon Tomato Salad

Here at Thrive Market, we're all about supporting sustainable, local farming, and we encourage our members to shop at their local farmers market for seasonal produce—it's the perfect complement to a pantry full of spices, oils, and cooking essentials from Thrive Market.

Bright and refreshing, a savory watermelon salad is perfection on swampy summer nights. A touch of mint and a hint of Mexican-inspired spice is the perfect foil for sweet sun-ripened watermelon and tomatoes straight from the farmers market.
