Basil & Watermelon Salad

This one is so easy that it barely needs it’s own post. It might seem like a strange combo of flavors but trust me, this will become your favorite summer salad! I use white balsamic so that I can keep the bright contrast of the red watermelon against the bright green basil but dark balsamic will work just as well.


  • 1 small seedless watermelon
  • 5 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • pinch of salt & pepper


Cut that watermelon into bite sized cubes, dice up the basil and put them both into a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt & pepper and pour in balsamic and then mix well. Let it chill for at least a half hour before serving.
