Labor of Love: Watermelon, Tomato and Cucumber Salad

My coworker Judy has made this salad a couple of times for the office. I had been very skeptical of the idea of adding salt to watermelon – but Judy proved me wrong! This combination is refreshing, unique and terribly delicious. I highly advise you make this before the tomato and watermelon season is over!
