Thanks for posting Cathy! Need to find more recipes for my thriving Thai basil
ETA: Dang! I just noticed "no cheese". Apologies. Do try this without the cheese.
Two years ago I was on a quest to copy the wonderful water melon salad I tasted at a local restaurant.
What they served:
Red watermelon cubes (seedless)
Yellow watermelon cubes
Crumbled feta cheese
Dressing to barely moisten the arugula
A mere dusting of red pepper - almost as a decor as some of it was on the white plate
Green, red, yellow and white made for a nice presentation. The flavors of watermelon & feta matched wonderfully. Jicama gave added crunch. I specifically wanted to re-create the dressing and finally came up with:
1 t raspberry vinegar
1 T EVOO
a few drops Tabasco
NOTE: Like the restaurant I used only enough dressing to barely moisten the arugula.

We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made.
