Watermelon and Chicory Salad


The combination of watermelon and balsamic vinegar may sound strange to you, but balsamic vinegar pairs wonderfully with fruit. The balsamic reduction is slightly syrupy, which truly enhances the watermelon’s natural flavor in a gourmet at home kinda way.  Also try this balsamic reduction with strawberries for a healthy dessert.  You could add sugar to the vinegar, but since the fruit is in season there is no need.
