Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 pounds seedless watermelon (rind removed), cut into 1-inch cubes (6 cups)

  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips (see note)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Cook's Notes

When cutting basil, stack a few basil leaves (of similar size). Roll into a tight cylinder; with a sharp knife, slice crosswise into thin strips.
