Florida Tomato, Watermelon, Blueberry Savory Salad

Florida grown summer salad is a great way to cool off from the heat. The recipe below was inspired by a fruit gazpacho I had at The Floridian Restaurant in St. Augustine, last week.

I made it with similar ingredients but did not blend them into soup. All the fresh ingredients were grown in Florida, the salt was not.

The tomatoes came from H & H Berry Farms, Montverde, Fla; the watermelon came from Dade City, Fla; the blueberries came from Green Acres Fernery & Citrus Inc in Yalaha, Fla; and the Thai basil came from my backyard, West Palm Beach, Fla.

I diced two tomatoes, four cups of watermelon, and added one and a half cups of blueberries.

Then I tossed the salad with one eight of a teaspoon of salt, and two six inch long sprigs of Thai basil flowers.

And voila! You get a savory summer salad to go with BBQ chicken or other meat.
