Watermelon Salad with Balsamic Reduction

A refreshing mix of watermelon wedges with fresh mint and goat cheese – the perfect way to cool down this summer!

I’m a bit of a plain Jane.

I prefer my fruit to be completely naked to say the least. No seasonings. No honey. No nothing.

My friends, on the other hand, love eating their fruit with a sprinkle of Mexican chili powder, like the ones from the street stands.

But for me, I need my fruit to be left alone.

Except, a couple weeks back, I decided to go outside my comfort zone to make a savory fruit dish with what I had on hand.

I had a half of a huge watermelon left in the fridge, some goat cheese, fresh mint and balsamic vinegar. And boy, was I in for a treat.

The thickened balsamic reduction melded so well with the refreshing, cold watermelon wedges, blending in with the creamy goat cheese crumbles and vibrant mint leaves.

It’s an incredibly simple “salad” yet such a refresher on a hot summer day.

You can also substitute feta cheese and use watermelon cubes if wedges aren’t your jam. It’s up to you!
