Adding juicy watermelon to an otherwise savory salad may seem strange, but the sweet fruit balances out the savory flavors of the tomato and the grilled shrimp, and a rich homemade dressing made up of balsamic vinegar, honey, Dijon mustard, and olive oil ties the dish together. A bed of crisp arugula—or baby spinach, if you prefer—supplies perfect texture. Because this recipe uses so few ingredients, picking the freshest, most colorful fruit and vegetables is imperative.
