Best Summer Appetizer: Watermelon w/ Feta & Balsamic
There's that balsamic syrup again.
I used to have to buy an inexpensive bottle of balsamic vinegar and boil it down to make my own syrup.
Now EVERYONE sells it.
Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Amazon, you name it.
I couldn't live without it.
It is very tasty and makes everything look pretty.
This is the EASIEST most refreshing appetizer this summer.
I cut up some seedless watermelon with a biscuit cutter and sprinkled the top with some feta cheese.
Just before serving, drizzle balsamic vinegar over the top and garnish with mint leaves.
The only bad thing about this pop in your mouth appetizer, is that you have to make and serve them right away, or they get watery.
Knowing your sophisticated palate, I think you would LOVE corn ice cream.
The Bent Spoon in Princeton has it, and it is off the charts........even better than the corn pizza at Razza.
Regarding herbs and soap......hmmm, I know people who hate cilantro say it tastes like soap, but I love it, so don't have that "soap gene" hatred towards herbie desserts. Basil and lemon tart, thyme and rosemary w/ fig galette, you should know me by now.
I guess besides making rounds of the watermelon, one can also use other cookie cutter forms?
Can't wait to try this!
