Aunt Jo’s Watermelon Salad

Watermelon salad is one of my favorite dishes to make all summer long. Mix cubed watermelon with basil, mint, tomatoes, mozzarella, feta, goat cheese…it’s all good. Just do me a favor and remember to add that sprinkling of salt at the end - it may sound weird to add salt to melon, but it really brightens up the flavor a lot. 

AUNT JO’S WATERMELON SALAD (sorry for the sorta lame photo - I had a baby in one hand and an autofocus camera in the other.)

In a large bowl, toss together cubed fresh watermelon, halved Bocconcini mozzarella (little mozzarella balls; get the good-quality stuff that comes packed in water), a handful of chiffonaded mint (click here to learn how to chiffonade), and a sprinkling of good-quality sea salt.
