This salad was delicious. The combination sounded strange at first, but the sweet watermelon mixed so well with the tomatoes and goat cheese. HOWEVER, you do not need all the basil oil, or even half of it.!! I used about 1/4 of the amount of oil listed in the recipe and it was delicious. I acutally poured off some of the oil as the evening went on because the tomatoes and watermelon made it juicy.
