I’ve been craving this simple salad every week since I tried some from the Whole Foods Market in Knoxville, Tennessee a couple of weeks ago. It’s such an easy, refreshing recipe and perfect for summer! It also makes a great picnic recipe!

Strawberry, Watermelon, and Basil Salad

All you need to make this simple summer salad is just a few ingredients.

  • strawberries
  • watermelon
  • fresh basil
  • cracked black pepper to taste

It’s best if all the fruit is chilled, so be sure to make room in your fridge to chill this strawberry watermelon basil salad for a couple hours before eating.

Optional: You could add in some feta cheese on top. Just sprinkle as much as you like, but a little feta goes a long way!

How to Chiffonade Basil

To chiffonade the basil, you want to stack and roll the leaves, slicing very thin.

This fresh Strawberry Watermelon Salad is one of our favorites. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

  1. Hi Melissa! I love summer salads too! I also add black olives and feta to my watermelon salad and it is so good! I have also added red onion chopped really small.. Something else I love as a little treat is a really small drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of Himalayan sea salt on cubed watermelon! ~Jessica
