A friend of mine sent this recipe for me to try and I love them! A perfect combination that will WOW your family and friends. Her recipe called for regular balsamic but I had Italian golden balsamic on hand so that is what I used for the simple syrup and thought it tasted great. Thanks Carla I can’t wait to make them for company this weekend for the 4th of July.
Watermelon, Basil and Tomato Skewers
¼ cup white balsamic vinegar
¼ cup sugar
Watermelon, small square chucks
Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
Small wood skewers
In a small sauce pan, make simple syrup with the balsamic and sugar by cooking over medium-low heat stirring minutes, remove from heat and set aside to cool.
On a small skewer add a chuck of watermelon, a small basil leaf and a tomato slice (face the cut side up) repeat. You should have 2 of each on the skewer.
Drizzle the finished skewers with the balsamic syrup, olive oil and some salt.
