One of my favorite things to do in Newport Beach is to take a duffy boat ride through the harbor. It’s the perfect excuse to bring the picnic basket, snacks and a bottle of wine. Ernie and Ellie enjoy it too, or at least the food we bring! Catch more fun activities on my Fashion page!
Now while I don’t necessarily recommend making this salad on a boat, that’s what I did! It’s super easy as long as you have calm seas. This salad is oh-so easy and a great way to incorporate watermelon this summer. Tell me your yours turns out!
Cut the mozzarella and the tomatoes into skinny pieces. Cut the watermelon in skinny long sheets, then put the tomato slices onto to the watermelon sheets and use a knife to cut perfect circles around the tomatoes. Stack tomato, mozzarella, basil and watermelon twice for each stack and repeat for all stacks. I added avocado to mine, but I put avocado on everything! Meanwhile pour a half cup of balsamic vinegar in a sauce pan, reduce for 10 minutes. Pour over Caprese stacks and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Enjoy! Get more of my favorite recipes here!
One of my favorite things in the summertime is sunflowers! I love them in a tall vase and they make the perfect gift. I picked some up for our friends on the way to dinner. I love this leather yellow skirt by Minkpink, it is out of stock but this one is very similar. I got so many compliments on this black satin bow top, it’s so cute and feminine.
