The watermelon is incredibly absorbent & I really like to maintain it’s original scrumptious candy-like flavor so I don’t mix any of the ingredients together until I plate them. In other words, I chop everything up & keep them in piles on my cutting board. I then assemble the salad on each person’s plate when it’s time to eat. Give it a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic glaze, & coarse salt. Top with chopped basil & mint & eat immediately. Refuse to do the dishes & enforce that all family members address you as “chef”, a la Gordon Ramsey, from now on because this salad was that darn good.
