Balsamic Caprese Mini Bites with Watermelon Cubes

 A SLICE OF SUMMER
Balsamic Caprese Mini Bites with Watermelon Cubes
Cook's Notes: Save time on party day by slicing cucumbers and watermelon cubes ahead but bag separately.  Assemble and drizzle with balsamic right before serving. Highly recommend using a chocolate  balsamic as it really amps up the flavor. Another option is making a mint lime vinaigrette (recipe below) but substitute mint for basil.  At larger grocery stores you can find herb mozzarella balls which would be great for this appetizer. 
Ingredients:
  • Cucumber slices
  • Watermelon cubes
  • Mozzarella balls (deli section) or Feta cubes 
  • Roma tomatoes
  • Basil or mint chopped
  • Good quality dark balsamic or chocolate balsamic 
Directions:
Mint Lime Vinaigrette
Ingredients:
  • 2 TB. olive oil
  • 2 TB. fresh mint
  • 4 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. honey 
  • 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
  • Whisk to combine or use a blender to mix. 
  • Serve with Blueberry Lemonade Slushies (recipe previously published)
