Y’all might remember this from my post a while back…..This dressing was so delish, I thought I’d resurrect this for you. It’ll make a great side for your Independence Day Cookout.

Watermelon Peach Salad with Basil and Lime Vinaigrette

4 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
1 cup tomatoes, diced the same size as watermelon pieces
2 peaches, sliced 1/4 inch thick

For the Lime Vinaigrette:

juice of 2 limes
1 tsp coconut nectar (or raw honey or agave)
dash sea salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

A handful basil, whole or chiffonade
1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds

    Place the watermelon, peaches and tomatoes in a large mixing bowl.
    Make the lime vinaigrette by adding the ingredients, minus the olive oil to a blender or food processor. Blend, and slowly pour in the olive oil.
    Drizzle about 1/4 cup of the vinaigrette onto the salad, stir in basil and half of the pumpkin seeds.
    When serving, drizzle a bit more of the dressing onto the salad, and garnish with more seeds.
