Unusual combination of flavors, but it worked for us. I had a mini melon in the fridge as well as some very ripe campari tomatoes (the ones on the vine), which released quite a bit of liquid. Next time, I think I'll mix the tomatoes and watermelon together and then drain because the liquid diluted the balsamic vinegar flavor. Very welcome change to the salad course, particularly at this time of year.
This salad is fabulous. I've made it twice now. Its such a nice change from the ordinary and great for dinner parties etc because it seems to be such an unlikely pairing yet is so tasty and unique. Chocked full of lycopene too and very easy to make. Make sure you use very good quality balsamic it really does make a diffence. You can also try it with some of the flavoured balsamic vinegars such as fig.
Really delicious! I thought it sounded great as soon as I read the ingredients; I was actually searching for a recipe that used watermelon and basil together. I could have left out the tomatoes altogether; I don't really think they brought much to the party. I also added a bit of sea salt and black pepper. A new summer fave!
The strength of flavor of your watermelon can affect the taset greatly I'd think. Mine was not very flavorful but this still turned out delicious. I used red yellow and orange tomatoes added a tiny bit of purple onion and only had regular balsamic instead of white but it still turned out awesome. I will make again and hopefully I'll have better more correct ingredients next time!
I used yellow watermelon (which is the color of mango) and red and yellow tomatoes for a nice change of color. Next time I would cut back on the Olive Oil and I used lowfat feta. I can't taste the lemon zest at all so don't let that stop you if you're out. My white balsamic vinegar must be pretty tasteless too. A good dark one might be better.
