Ingredients

  • 12 oz red watermelon or yellow watermelon, small dice
  • 12 oz red tomato or yellow tomato, small dice
  • 12 oz fresh blueberries
  • Note: If possible, select watermelon and tomatoes in contrasting colors. (I couldn't find any yellow tomatoes or melon at my store, but it still came out great!)

  • 1/2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp honey

  • 2 Tbsp basil, chiffonade
  • 2 Tbsp mint, chiffonade

  2. After the melon has rested, discard or re-purpose the watermelon/tomato juice.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together oil, lime, honey, salt and pepper.
  4. Prepare the basil and mint at service time, to prevent browning.
  5. Add blueberries to watermelon and tomatoes.
  6. Dress the melon salad with the prepared dressing.
  7. Stir in the herbs and cheese.
  8. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.

Note: If you are not serving all of the salad right away, you may want to add the cheese as a garnish when serving, so it doesn't get mushy.
