Grilled Watermelon Caprese Salad

1

Take your watermelon and slice it into 1-icnh rings. From there, cut it into triangles.

Watermelon

NOTE: When picking out a watermelon, there is the number one thing you should look for… the yellow spot. If your watermelon does not have a yellow blemish on the skin, then it was picked way too soon.

2

Try to remove as much excess juice from the slices as you can. I suggest patting it down with a paper towel. I do this right before grilling, and then I brush the watermelon with olive oil.

3

Grill the watermelon on high for 2-3 minutes, until it is seared. I’m using this brand new Char-Broil grill I got from Lowe’s. I haven’t had my own grill, well, forever. I am really loving it.

Slice up the cherry tomatoes by placing them between two plates, the top one upside down. And running your knife between the gap.

Add a watermelon slice, some cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, and fresh mozzarella to a plate. Drizzle all of it with balsamic glaze.
