White balsamic vinegar is best in this refreshing salad as it adds acid without overpowering the sweetness of the watermelon. You can also substitute unseasoned rice vinegar or even fresh lime juice, adding a touch of honey if needed. Fresh torn mint will work in place of the basil.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine watermelon, cucumber, vinegar, oil, and salt in a medium bowl; toss gently to coat. 

Step 2

Sprinkle with basil and pepper.
