Ingredients

  • 5 lb watermelon
  • 2 peaches
  • 1 cucumber
  • 6 oz blue cheese crumbles I prefer gorgonzola
  • 6 slices fresh mozzarella
  • 1 shallot
  • 6 tsp balsamic vinegar really good quality!

Instructions

  • To assemble this salad, you'll want to cut your watermelon down the center and cut 1" slices.
  • Use a cookie cutter to cut out rounds. My cookie cutter was 2.5" diameter.
  • Place one slice of mozzarella on top of each watermelon slice.
  • Then chop up your peach and cucumber into tiny squares to top the watermelon & mozzarella.
  • Thinly slice your shallot and place a few slices on each round. Add the blue cheese - 1 oz per serving.
  • The last step is to drizzle with a good quality balsamic vinegar. Serve immediately.
