Basil is my favorite herb of all time, with mint falling behind as a very close second. Despite my countless efforts to keep basil plants alive and flourishing for my own benefit, I just can't make it happen. With the exception of the ever resilient rosemary, I often rely on prepackaged herbs from the store. And since purchasing fresh herbs sometimes feels like a splurge, I try my best to use every ounce of these fragrant treats to create other tasty dishes. After finishing off the cobb salad remix, I had some basil leftover and an entire watermelon to eat in a matter of days. Without much thought, I decided to make a refreshingly, yet flavorful strawberry watermelon basil salad. It's super easy and a fun snack to enjoy on an afternoon spent playing outside or working in the yard.
