Watermelon Caprese Salad


Light, refreshing, and full of flavor -- this watermelon caprese salad has the right mix of sweet and sour. With fresh watermelon, tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, it's a unique twist on a summer salad that will have you going back for more.


- 4 cups chopped tomatoes (optional)
- 4 cups cubed watermelon
- Mozzarella balls (such as Bel Gioioso); or 2 to 3 ounces of fresh mozzarella, cut into small pieces
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup, packed, fresh basil - chopped
- 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
- 2 Tbs olive oil
- 1/2 Tbs fresh lemon zest

Combine the tomatoes, watermelon, mozzarella, and a little bit of salt and pepper in a bowl. In a separate small bowl, mix basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil,  and lemon zest. Drizzle over tomato mixture and combine gently until thoroughly saturated. Drain a little bit of the excess balsamic mixture. Enjoy!
