Summer Watermelon Tomato Salad

Serves 6

1.5 lb Seedless Watermelon, Large Diced

3 Heirloom Tomatoes, lightly salted and each cut into 8 wedges

10 ounces Feta Cheese Medium Diced

4 Watermelon Radishes, Halved and Sliced Thin

4 ounces Spring Pea Shoots, Halved

Kosher Salt to taste



1/2 cup Basil

½ cup Fresh Lime Juice

1 Tablespoon Honey

1 Small Ice Cube

Kosher Salt and Cracked Black Pepper to Taste



Place basil, small ice cube, honey and lime juice in a blender and puree for 5-8 seconds until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. (The blender creates heat so using the ice cube will stop the browning of the basil)


Toss cubed watermelon, salted/wedged heirloom tomato,watermelon radish and pea shoots together with vinaigrette. Add feta then toss lightly one more time. Gently scoot the salad on a platter and drizzle a little extra vinaigrette on top. ENJOY!
