When I was asked to bring something to Staci's Housewarming party, I knew instantly what I wanted to make! It was going to be an outdoor party, and I thought I watermelon salad would be perfect for a summer evening. I hunted for recipes that looked yummy and was inspired by this one.
I got so many compliments on this dish and I know we will make it again. Next time I might experiment and add more ingredients! I think red onion and feta cheese would be a nice addition.

In a large bowl combine the following:
5 cups chopped chilled watermelon
2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
2 cups halved red grapes
3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt to taste
2 tablespoons fresh chopped mint
2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
You can use regular balsamic vinegar, but white balsamic is lighter and because it's clear, it doesn't affect the color of your salad. You can find it next to all the other vinegars in your grocery store. I had to look for a minute, but there was some at my store. And if I can find it at my tiny grocery store, I'm sure you can too!
