I had watermelon gazpacho recently at the amazing Wolf Mountain winery in Dahlonega, Ga. The tomato and watermelon together were brilliant and so refreshing, as soon as I got home I threw 4 of my favorite things in a bowl (watermelon, tomato, feta and basil) to see what happened. It was absolute summer salad heaven!
This is obviously a very simple recipe, and the most important factor is great ingredients. Look at the gorgeous heirloom tomatoes below from my local farmers market. Enjoy…
By the way, I know what you’re thinking about Georgia wineries, but Wolf Mountain and Montaluce Winery are fabulous. I can’t wait to eat at Le Vigne (drooling over this menu) on my next trip!!! Enjoy…
- 2 cups watermelon chunks
- 1.5 cups halved cherry (heirloom) tomatoes
- 3 tablespoons basil
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1 cup delicious feta cheese
(I use Noble Springs Dairy or Sheep’s Milk Feta from Trader Joe’s)
Mix all ingredients together and serve immediately, will keep in the fridge for a couple of days but SO much better tasting when it’s enjoyed fresh!
