Watermelon Peach Tomato Avocado Salad

I was in the bookstore the other day leafing through Gerald Hirigoyen's gorgeous Pintxos: Small Plates in the Basque Tradition when his recipe for Tomato and Watermelon Salad caught my eyes. Tomatoes? With watermelon?! The combination seemed so dissonant and yet logical when I thought about it, and I was determined to make some that night. I didn't remember the recipe in its entirety but I still love the end result. I decided to add peaches to this since I had some on hand, drizzled everything with a little bit of olive oil and sprinkles of salt and pepper.

I tried to emulate the photo from the book, but this is a poor imitation. I didn't have the patience to evenly dice everything out. Go check out the book!
