watermelon caprese

Did you know watermelon has the same phytochemical, lycopene, that tomatoes have? This is what gives watermelon & tomatoes their red color. But not only that, it is an antioxidant which may help reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer! Woo!

While sitting in class today, I was craving watermelon and this is what I spontaneously made of it!

I N G R E D I E N T S:

  • 1 mini, seedless watermelon, sliced
  • 1 c. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pkg FRESH mozzarella cheese
  • a handful of basil, chopped
  • 2 tbsp honey

 

D I R E C T I O N S:

  • drizzle watermelon slices with olive oil on both sides
  • in a small saucepan, combine balsamic vinegar and honey and bring to a boil
  • reduce heat and simmer until vinegar is visibly reduced down
  • Place individual watermelon sliced on the grill for 2-3 minutes each side, or until the fruit has nice grill marks πŸ™‚
  • Top watermelon with sliced mozzarella, chopped basil, and reduced balsamic.

 

Easy, quick, and fresh. Enjoy πŸ™‚
