Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1/4 cup aged balsamic vinegar (or 1/2 cup regular balsamic vinegar, reduced to 1/4 cup)
    1 small seedless watermelon (need about 1/2 of the melon to make cubes)
    48 small basil leaves (or torn larger leaves)
    16 cherry tomatoes, halved
    olive oil (in a Misto or similar product)
    coarse kosher salt

Directions

Instructions:
1. If using regular balsamic vinegar, add 1/2 cup vinegar to small saucepan. Bring to a simmer, and reduce liquid by 1/2. Set aside to cool.

2. Cube watermelon into 1.5 inch cubes. Assemble the skewers by pushing a basil leaf to the end of one skewer. Then skewer a cube of melon, then a tomato half. Continue with another watermelon cube, basil leaf, and tomato half, ending with a basil leaf. Repeat to make 15 more skewers.
