Watermelon Feta Bites

I saw this on www.foodgawker.com (it’s seriously so inspiring to look at!!) and had to try it!  It was really easy to do, and looked so elegant.  It was on the menu for a birthday brunch that I threw for myself last weekend haha.  The picture and recipe I saw had a balsamic reduction that I’m sure would be a fantastic addition.  But, we didn’t have any balsamic vinegar when I made these, so we just left that off.  Next time I do them, I will definitely include that though!

1 watermelon

1 block Feta cheese

Fresh basil

Balsamic vinegar reduction

Slice watermelon in 1 1/2 inch slices.  Use a small biscuit cutter to cut out circles from the melon.  Repeat for as many as you are making.  The block of Feta I had was about 1/2 inch thick.  Use the same size biscuit cutter to cut circles out of the cheese.  Use a very sharp knife and very carefully cut each circle in half.  The Feta is very potent, so you want a much higher ratio of watermelon to the cheese.  Make the balsamic reduction by placing vinegar in a sauce pan over low heat and let it reduce.  It will become thick and sticky.  Place the watermelon on a platter or plate and top with the Feta and then a drizzle of the balsamic reduction.  Place a fresh piece of basil on each bite.
