This recipe, courtesy of Marcus Samuelsson, proves that you don't need to overload with a bunch of ingredients in order to make a tastefully complex dish. Though I'm guessing the fresh basil I picked up didn't hurt.
Watermelon and Basil Salad
- 4 cups watermelon, cut into cubes
- Handful basil leaves, chopped
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Sea salt, I like the coarse, crystal variety to give it some texture
- Black pepper
Directions:Place watermelon and basil in a salad bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and toss to combine thoroughly.
