Watermelon and Tomato Salad

My mom made this amazing recipe for our family reunion yesterday.  This was probably my most favorite dish.  The watermelon, onion, tomato, and vinegar just sent my taste buds over the edge!  This is a must make recipe for this summer!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
