We enjoyed this refreshing dish at José Andrés' Jaleo restaurant in Washington DC. This is a great salad when watermelon is in season. The flavors are fresh with a subtle balance of mostly sweet with a touch of saltiness. We did our best to reverse-engineer the recipe, so feel free to improve it by adjusting any of the ingredients or proportions to your liking.
1
Prepare the dressing by dissolving the salt into the vinegars. Whisk in the olive oil, then reserve.
2
Slice the watermelon and plate it.
3
Dice the tomato into small cubes and sprinkle it over the watermelon. Dress the salad at this point.
4
Top the salad with goat cheese, pistachio, mint, and microgreens. Enjoy immediately.
