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! 
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


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.
