Everyone loves a Caprese salad, but this summer why not change it up a little and add some refreshing watermelon to the mix. Watermelon is such a wonderful summer flavor and it works so well here with the creamy mozzarella and peppery radish leaves. Usually paired with feta, this watermelon salad is something beautifully different and is sure to have the family asking for salad all summer long!

To get the best out of your salad you want to fresh mozzarella, rather than loaf mozzarella (low moisture mozzarella). Fresh mozzarella is much softer, creamier and will rip into delicious fibrous chunks. If you can find it then Buffalo Mozzarella (Mozzarella di Bufala) is amazingly soft and creamy. It has a sweeter saltier tang to it, a much softer texture and is so delicious. It is definitely worth buying should you see it.
Pick any microgreens you like, here we used radish. Cress would be a wonderful option too. Alternatively you can use the traditional basil.
