Balsamic Watermelon Skewers

These are so pretty, refreshing, and delicious!  I made a pretty picnic for my husband the other night and these were on the menu.  We both loved the cool, crisp watermelon with the creamy mozzarella and fragarant basil with the sweetness of the balsamic reduction. 
What you’ll need:
Watermelon cubed
Mini fresh mozzarella balls
Fresh basil leaves
2 Tbsp. Balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp. sugar

In a small sauce pan, heat the balsamic vinegar and sugar over medium heat. Don’t boil, simply simmer until the sugar is dissolved and remove from the heat to let cool completely. The reduction will become thick and yummy!
Skewer your watermelon, basil leaves and mozzarella alternately. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Drizzle the reduction over the skewers just before serving.
