Directions

Whisk the balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and olive oil in a bowl. Taste for seasoning; add salt and pepper. Set aside.

Slice the beefsteak tomatoes. Arrange in a single layer; season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the sugar. Transfer to a bowl and drizzle with half of the dressing. Add the tarragon and strawberries; toss.

Divide the tomato mixture among plates. Drizzle with more dressing and top with the watermelon. Serve immediately.

Keep your watermelon ice cold and tomatoes at room-temperaturefor this dish.  The contrast of temperatures gives the salad an extra-fresh taste.
