Watermelon Salad

OK, here is one that is so easy that I won’t even give you a step by step recipe – because you won’t need one. If you are familiar with the fresh seasonal watermelon and basil salad, with goat cheese or feta, you get it. This is just a presentation shift, that’s all. Here I have made it into a napoleon, a layered salad. The experience of a meal begins with the eyes, so why not reformat some of our favorite dishes. This requires no more effort, but will present itself as a gift to your guests.


seedless watermelon, sliced rectangularly (or whatever shape you please)

crumbled goat cheese or feta

thinly sliced red onions


basil chiffonade*

basalmic reduction, drizzled around the plate,

(you can make it or just buy it…it lasts forever and is a stellar to keep on hand for presentation, you might be surprised by how often you will use this product. It is a good culinary investment.)

optional- crispy bacon crumbles, to send this salad right on over the top, into oblivion

So easy, and so delicious. Behold the power of presentation~
bon appétit!



*In case you do not know how to chiffonade basil, here is a quick little “how to”:
