  • A quarter of 1 medium-sized seedless watermelon, rind removed, and chopped into 1-inch cubes (roughly 8 cups)
  • 2-4 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar, taste to adjust
  • 1 tablespoon basil, chopped
  • pinch kosher salt, about ⅛th of a teaspoon

  • Serve and enjoy this delicious and refreshing salad.


*Salad will keep up to 24 hours, after that it starts to get a bit soggy and not as crunchy and delicious like it should be. So enjoy it fresh!
*To adjust for a WHOLE WATERMELON: Take 1 watermelon (cut into 1” cubes). Add ½ cup of white balsamic, ¼ cup basil (chopped), and then about ½ teaspoon of salt. Mix together and serve.
