Word Up: Basil Watermelon Goat Cheese Salad

Basil Watermelon Goat Cheese Salad

I love more than fruit, vegetables and flowers. (OK and dogs too.) I try to eat a lot of fresh salads throughout the week, but lately they’ve been feeling a little mundane. I had this alphabet cookie cutter set from this cake/plant topper DIY project, and decided to make a basil watermelon goat cheese salad…a little more interesting. Plus, do you know just how good watermelon is for you? Check out the health benefits of this superfood. It’s easy to do, details below!Basil Watermelon Goat Cheese Salad Ingredients:

Cut the watermelon into 3/4″ slices. Decide what you want to spell out, and lay your letters out onto of each slice. Cut out the letters and place onto a plate. I love these cookie cutter letters because they are 3″ X 2″ X 1″ and each letter is a generous portion of watermelon. Top the watermelon letters with as much chopped basil and crumbled goat cheese as you like. Finally, drizzle with balsamic. Serve chilled. Basil Watermelon Goat Cheese Salad
