Last Call for Summer Salad

By Susan Reda Posted August 30, 2012 at 4:07 pm

As much as I anticipate the autumnal colors, chilly weather and seasonal produce, I will sorely miss the fruits of summer.  In celebration of the upcoming Blue Moon and Labor Day, I put together this simple though tasty tribute to watermelon, sun golds and garden herbs.  Cucumbers could be added and to suit your palate, switch out the mint for cilantro.  Enjoy! 
 
Ingredients:
3 cups seedless watermelon, cut into bite size pieces
2 cups sun gold tomatoes, halved
2 T basil, chopped
2 T mint, chopped
Zest of one lime
Juice of one lime
1 t chili powder
1 t kosher salt
1/2 t black pepper
Chapel Hill Creamery Farmers Cheese, crumbled

 

 
Directions:
Combine all ingredients and toss.  Taste and adjust seasoning. 

How simple is that?  A perfect side for your holiday cookout. 

Best served at room temperature.
