Yes, I am jumping on the watermelon salad bandwagon. How can I help it? I keep seeing these beautiful salads online & then I get a nice little watermelon from my CSA.
I made my salad with what was on hand, olive oil from the pantry, goat cheese leftover from a tart & basil from the garden. I was a little worried this would be strange but let me tell you, we loved it! The tartness of the goat cheese & slight pepper flavor of the basil just balance the sweetness of the watermelon perfectly. I have another watermelon on the way & will be awful tempted to repeat this.
My salad was inspired by this one at Eating Out Loud. Yeah, mine is quite rustic compared to Allen's beautiful presentation.
