I had an abundance of watermelon to use up at the 4th of July Pot-Luck Pool Party. The week prior, I had purchased four small seedless watermelons to make these tasty treats. Kim, Peggy, Anne and I were planning to get together at Kim’s new house for a little housewarming happy hour. At the last minute, plans changed. Without the party on the horizon, I don’t know what I would have done with them all!
I used them up in a non-alcoholic watermelon-strawberry-lemon slushy and in this refreshing watermelon salad.

Lime Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, honey, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
Salad: Arrange the watermelon chunks on a serving platter. Sprinkle with the blueberries, basil and feta. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and sprinkle with sea salt.
