3 c cubed seedless watermelon
2 c tomato chunks
several fresh basil leaves, cut in chiffonade
4 oz feta cheese (optional)
basic vinaigrette. (In a blender, combine 1/4 c olive oil, 2 T red wine vinegar, salt and pepper.)


Combine all ingredients and toss. You can substitute peach for the watermelon or the tomato. You could also substitute crumbled bacon for the feta.
