Watermelon salad is one of my favorite dishes to make all summer long. Mix cubed watermelon with basil, mint, tomatoes, mozzarella, feta, goat cheese…it’s all good. Just do me a favor and remember to add that sprinkling of salt at the end – it may sound weird to add salt to melon, but it really brightens up the flavor a lot.
AUNT JO’S WATERMELON SALAD (sorry for the sorta lame photo – I had a baby in one hand and an autofocus camera in the other.)
In a large bowl, toss together cubed fresh watermelon, halved Bocconcini mozzarella (little mozzarella balls; get the good-quality stuff that comes packed in water), a handful of chiffonaded mint (click here to learn how to chiffonade), and a sprinkling of good-quality sea salt.
