I’m trying to enjoy these last days of summer by sitting on the patio in the evenings while it’s still light outside. What better way to cool off then by having a refreshing snack? Watermelon has always been one of my favorite treats because it reminds of summer vacations by the beach. I remember eating sweet juicy watermelon while sitting on white sandy beaches.
So, today I’m sharing a healthful recipe that enhances the sweet flavor of watermelon. These little bites with balsamic sauce were amazing. I loved how fresh and light they tasted and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did. The recipe is so simple! Although I made them as a snack yesterday, I can see this recipe being the hit of any party.
- Fresh watermelon cut into cubes or circles
- Feta cut into cubes
- Fresh mint
- Black olives
- Balsamic Vinegar
- Sugar (optional)
- Simply cut the water melon and feta into small cubes (or circles). Place a mint leave between each layer and finish off with another mint leaf and a black olive. To hold them together place a small skewer through all the layers.
- For the balsamic sauce, place half a cup of balsamic vinegar in a sauce pan over medium to high heat. Once the vinegar begins to boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the desired consistency is reached; 5 minutes for a runny consistency or closer to 10-15 for a thick glaze. I add a few tablespoons of sugar as the vinegar is reducing but this step is optional. When finished reducing, just drizzle the sauce over top of the watermelon bites right before serving.
Enjoy! Buen Provecho!
