Fabulous Recipe: Fresh Watermelon, Tomato, And Basil Salad

Fabulous Recipe: Fresh Watermelon, Tomato, And Basil Salad

This light, refreshing, and exceedingly tasty salad was inspired by my friend chef extraordinaire Geoffrey Zakarain.

  • ½ red and/or yellow seedless watermelon (about 4 pounds), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 30 red and/or yellow cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 10 small basil leaves (from the center of the sprig)
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • Coarse sea salt ad freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1. Combine the watermelon, tomatoes, and basil in a large serving bowl.

2. Place the vinegar in a small mixing bowl, whisk in the oil, add the mixture to the salad, and toss well. Season with salt and pepper, and serve either chilled or at room temperature.
