Ingredients

    4 C fresh spinach, cleaned
    4 wedges seedless watermelon, rind removed
    6 T balsamic vinegar
    2 oz goat cheese (fig goat cheese, if you can find it!)
    1 t olive oil for grilling

Tips

A few toasted walnut or pecan bits on this are also delicious!


Directions

Heat grill in preparation of grilling watermelon (this can also be done in a grill pan on the stove).
Meanwhile, place balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan, reduce over low heat, stirring, until about half of the original volume. Set aside off heat.
Spray watermelon wedges with olive oil using a mister, or brush oil on lightly. Grill on each side for 2-3 minutes.
While watermelon is grilling, plate about 1 cup of spinach on each of four salad plates.
Place grilled watermelon atop spinach.
Sprinkle each plate with 1/4 of the goat cheese.
Drizzle the balsamic reduction over the salad.
Serve.
