The Food Network or The Cooking Channel are always on at my house.
Sometimes it’s for backround noise, other times it’s for entertainment, but it is always on for inspiration. Like this watermelon salad I watched two people make on chopped. After the judges raved on how delicious it was, I just couldn’t get it out of my head.
It’s simple, easy, and refreshing. A great balance between sweet, tart, and earthy. It’s a more mature palate type of lemonade.
It’s exquisite. As a side dish, appetizer, or in a big bowl with a giant fork on its own.
It’d be perfect to bring to a potluck, BBQ, or to serve for this upcoming Memorial Day.
1/4 a watermelon
1/2 a fresh lime’s juice
Handful of fresh basil
Dice the watermelon and put it into a large bowl. Dice the basil pretty small and add it into the bowl of watermelon. Squeeze the lime juice into the bowl and mix with your hands until the watermelon is fully covered in the basil and lime. You can make this the night before to let the flavors marinate or serve right away.
