  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbs honey
  • 1/2 small red seedless watermelon cut into 1x1" thick
  • 10 oz. 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved (or your choice)
  • 6 oz. fresh mozzarella sliced (or torn)
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil torn into bite size pieces
  • 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Add balsamic vinegar and honey to a saucepan. Bring to a boil and immediately reduce heat to low. Let it simmer for 20 min. until sauce is reduced to about half and is a thick consistency.
  • Preheat a grill pan over high heat and spray the pan with cooking spray. Sear each side of the watermelon 1-2 minutes per side or until a nice char has formed.
  • Arrange tomatoes, mozzarella, watermelon, and basil in a large bowl. Toss gently to combine. Add the olive oil, balsamic reduction, and salt. Toss until everything is well coated.
