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.
