Balsamic Glaze

  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey


  • 6 cups watermelon, seeded and cut into ½-inch bites
  • 1 medium cucumber, sliced into rounds
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ¼ red onion, sliced into ½ circles
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt


Balsamic Glaze

  1. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add the balsamic vinegar. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium-low, stirring occasionally until the liquid is reduced by half.
  2. Add in the honey and stir to combine. Remove from heat. (The balsamic reduction should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.) Set aside.
