Watermelon Basil Salad

prep time: 1 hourcook time: 5 minstotal time: 1 hours and 5 mins
This is a delicious summer watermelon salad with all fresh ingredients

ingredients:

1 cup halved grape tomatoes
1/4 cup cubed mozzarella, provolone or feta
1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
1 teaspoon fresh chopped mint
1 small seedless cucumber cut into small pieces
salt pepper to taste
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 pounds of seedless watermelon cubed

Garnish
Romaine full lettuce leaves
Fresh basil leaves
Mint sprigs


Basil Oil Dressing see below:
1 cup fresh basil leaves
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

instructions:

(Basil Oil Dressing):

Blanch the basil leaves in boiling water for one minute. Place in a bath of ice water. Drain.
Put the basil and olive oil in a food processor and blend till smooth. Pour this basil oil into a  cheesecloth with a glass bowl underneath it. Let it drip. Do not squeeze cheese cloth. Let drip around 1 hour.

In the meantime make the salad. I line a bowl or individual plates with romaine lettuce set aside.
  
In another bowl toss the watermelon, cucumbers, tomatoes and cheese with olive oil and lemon juice. Transfer to your serving bowl or plates.

Drizzle with basil oil and more olive oil. Salt, pepper to taste.

Garnish with mint sprigs and basil leaves.

  4. Watermelon and basil is such a wonderful combination! Sadly, my basil didn't grow well this summer, but since I can find fresh basil at the grocery store I'm putting this one on my must-make list

  6. I've never tried watermelon and basil or even cheese with watermelon yet. Have seen them often paired but one of these days I'm going to have to try.

  7. This is such a wonderful summer salad. Perfect at a picnic or eating al fresco. My daughter makes a wonderful one -- I remember I couldn't stop eating on it. The watermelon is so filling that you don't overeat on the heavier dishes. This is a fantastic recipe.

  8. I just feel like having my summer days back. Watermelon are great for salads, juices, mock tails, cocktails.....everything. I love watermelon basil salad with feta. I need to try this salad without feta, i'm sure I won't complain.
