Melon Salad with Basil Dressing

We really enjoy our melon's in the summer time. There is nothing better than a Black Diamond Watermelon form central Texas or a Cantaloupe from the valley of Texas. Both of these melons are delicious all on their own but they make a great dish when mixed together. Our Basil made from the fresh Basil in our herb garden make this Melon Salad a very special side dish for any meal.
