How to Make Easy Watermelon Salad:

Gosh y’all it’s so easy it barely requires an explanation…but I’ll give one anyway because Google demands my post be at least 300 words long. That’s actually true. Simply cut watermelon slices into slices, decorate with a few strawberries and arugula leaves, crumble with a block of feta, and drizzle with balsamic glaze. If you like, you can add on pomegranate seeds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pine nuts, or pistachios!

The Balsamic Glaze:

Balsamic glaze is balsamic vinegar that has been reduced into a thick, delectable syrup. It’s perfect drizzled over fruit, cheeses and even ice cream! Find a quality balsamic glaze here. Please don’t try this recipe with balsamic vinegar, trust me…I am a doctor/recipe creator.
