TIME: 10 min

YIELD: 30 (perfect for a get together)

INGREDIENTS:

1/4 medium organic watermelon, cut into small rectangles approx 1 inches x 1.5 inches

goat mozarella or a similar tasting cheese

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (we are in love with the Mousto Balsamic from Acropolis Organics)

15 large mint leaves, cut in half

toothpicks/skewers

PROCESS:

1. Cut the watermelon into slices about 1 inche thick. Take each of those and proceed to section into little cubes for the entree (approx 1.5 inches in length).

2. Cut cheese thinly, approx 0.5 inches x 1 - or to put it simply, so it will comfortably fit on the watermelon cube.

3. Wash, pat dry, and cut fresh mint leaves.

4. Skewer ingredients together: watermelon, cheese, then top with a mint leaf.

5. Pour balsamic on a plate. Stamp each of the stacked cubes in the vinegar, and transfer immediately to serving plate.
