Watermelon-Feta Salad

Photo credit:  Rachel F., Song of the South Blog


This is what summer is all about right here.

Sweet, juicy watermelon double-dates tart feta cheese and twangy balsamic vinegar on a bed of greens.

Quick!  Grab your fork!

I found this gastronomical joy on the blog of a sweet friend.  We met in March, and our hearts connected instantly.  Rachel is a kindred spirit. 

Don't you love it when that happens?

Hey, have you ever reduced balsamic vinegar? 

Just boil it until it gets thick and a little gooey. 

Simple ingredients?  You got it.

Mixed greens and arugula.
Feta cheese.
Cubed watermelon.
Reduced balsamic vinegar.

If you are scrunching your nose in mock disgust, I'm pleading with you.   For the love of all things good and decent...give it a try!

Thanks, Rachel!
