This salad is so easy and so delicious. We grilled the watermelon in a griddle pan with balsamic vinegar and topped it with lots of salt and pepper, it went perfectly in this salad with mozzarella and tomatoes and rocket. Just a few simple ingredients created so much flavour. The balsamic vinegar was a perfect addition. Though to be honest I am pretty obsessed with balsamic vinegar. It was such a refreshing salad I hope you will enjoy it. I have been eating this all summer and wanted to share it before the season is over.
