The first time I had this watermelon salad was on one of my many trips to NYC for New York Fashion Week. My friend Jennifer and I would fly in and work as brand ambassadors for a hair extension company. Basically, we were hair dealers. You thought all that hair going down the catwalk was real. Grrl, please!
One of our fave restaurants to eat was (and is) Elmo in Chelsea. Not only do they have a perfect Manhattan (it’s a cocktail) they have this Basil Mozzarella Watermelon Salad that will knock your socks off. Over the years it has become our thing to go to Elmo and eat this Basil Mozzarella Watermelon Salad.
I have made this several times at home – I just never wrote it down! This is truly one of my favorite things to put in my mouth. Super easy and super fresh tasting. I changed it up a bit in regards to the appearance, however, the taste remains the same – I promise!
