wishful cooking…

The summery appetizer I made the other didn’t do much to force summer to arrive any sooner. It did, however, inspire me to prepare another favorite warm weather treat to help beat the winter doldrums.

This one was very easy and quick to make. Reducing the balsamic vinegar to a thick, syrupy consistency probably took the longest. To me, anything on a stick is a great reminder of summer picnics or backyard barbecues.

Cubed seedless watermelon, cherry tomatoes, and torn basil leaves are skewered together and drizzled with the balsamic reduction. A sprinkling of fleur de sel finishes it off nicely.

Maybe if I wish really. harder, it would be summer very soon…
