Watermelon Salad

Last summer, I had one of the best, most unusual salads I've ever eaten. It was the Watermelon-Feta Salad from Relish. Unfortunately, it's no longer on their menu, so I have to make my own. All I recall from it, was that it included fresh watermelon, crumbled feta cheese and heirloom tomatoes. After a bit of Googling for recipes, I created this:



It has what I remember from Relish's salad, plus fresh Thai basil from my garden. I took this right before I poured the homemade balsamic vinaigrette over it. If I had to do it over again, I think I'd skip the vinaigrette. It didn't ruin it, but I think it gave it too many competing flavors. I'll definitely leave it out next time.

Watermelon tastes so good in salads, and adding feta cheese just makes it better. Thanks for joining in on Grow Your Own!

I've seen this one around a bit lately. It must be as good as it looks if it is so popular.
