2 cups diced seedless watermelon

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

10 fresh basil leaves, sliced

1 tsp drizzled reduced balsamic vinegar

2Divide arugula between 4 chilled salad bowls or plates and top with diced watermelon.

3Top each salad with feta cheese and basil.

4Drizzle reduced balsamic vinegar over and serve.

Reduced Balsamic Vinegar

1You can purchase reduced balsamic but it is easy to make! Place 1 cup vinegar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer and stir until it is reduced to a third (about 20 minutes). Cool to room temperature and pour into a squeeze bottle using a funnel. You can also write a love note on your bowl or plate with the vinegar.
