This dish is unbelievable when you use the freshest, ripest ingredients, all at room temperature. This is how you make the most of summer!



    • 4 heirloom tomatoes, roughly chopped
    • 1½ cups yellow seedless watermelon, large dice
    • 1½ cups red seedless watermelon peeled, large dice
    • 3/4 pound fresh buffalo (or regular) mozzarella cheese, sliced
    • 18 mint leaves, torn
    • 12 basil leaves, torn
    • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Optional

    • Thinly sliced jalapeno or few chile flakes for heat


Arrange cut ingredients in center of 6 bowls equally. Scatter the herbs equally, then drizzle with the oil, and season with salt and pepper.
