Watermelon Salad with Basil Feta and Balsamic Reduction.

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Don't let summer end without making this salad. It has a delicious, vibrant taste that goes well with just about everything! This salad was made in my daughter's kitchen, as we are still "building" ours! This move to Montana has been a journey of one discovery after another. It is also the best move of my life! But back to this salad...

You can make up the balsamic reduction ahead for last-minute assembly of the salad. Depending upon your own preferences, there may be a portion of the balsamic reduction left over. But it won't go to waste I assure you, it is wonderful over sliced tomatoes or to dip Jicama spears into. Or anything else you want to use it for.

By the way, it is also quite good over steamed and chilled asparagus...

Watermelon Salad with Basil Feta and Balsamic Reduction, vibrant and delicious!

4 c watermelon chunks ( about 1/4 of a medium melon)
3 or 4 oz Feta, crumbled
2 sprigs basil, remove leaves and set aside
1/2 t salt (or to taste)
1/4 t pepper (or to taste)
1/2 lime

Balsamic reduction:
1/2 c balsamic vinegar
