Looking for something new to bring to your next summer BBQ? Try this refreshing Watermelon Strawberry and Tomato Salad, with Basil and Blue Cheese. It’s a showstopper, and so EASY!
You may be thinking to yourself, ‘Caroline has jumped the shark on this one.’ But trust me, you have to try this, it is sooo fantastic!
I already knew that watermelon, basil, and blue cheese are delicious together from my Grilled Watermelon and Shrimp Salad recipe.
I also knew that basil is great with both tomatoes and strawberries; so I decided to put them all together. WOW! I’m so glad I did, because this is a gorgeous combination. Sweet, salty, bright, and savory… all come together in a refreshing, summer, flavor partaaaaaay!
Oh, and my kids love this too!
Because I was not serving a big crowd, I didn’t buy a whole watermelon. Instead, I picked up a small container of pre-cut, organic watermelon. Easy peasy!
If you are dairy-free, you can just omit the blue cheese, it is not critical.
This recipe and be made up to a day in advance, and is a great side dish for a potluck picnic or BBQ. You might want to double, or even triple the recipe for a picnic, since this only serves 8.
I love adding a whole, unprocessed and healthy twist to classic recipes. My food is often grain-free, usually gluten-free, and always unprocessed.
