Start with preparing the basil simple syrup. In a small pot or sauce pan, bring water to a gentle simmer, add the sugar and stir until sugar has completely dissolved. Remove from heat and cool until room temperature. Pour liquid into a processor or blender, add fresh basil leaves and pulse until leaves are fully blended. Set aside. 

Place the watermelon wedges on a serving platter and fan a few avocado slices on each wedge. Sprinkle crumbled feta over the wedges, grind fresh black pepper and drizzle with basil simple syrup. Garnish with more fresh basil if desired.
