watermelon caprese stack watermelon caprese salad watermelon caprese with balsamic reduction caprese stack with avocado mouth watering summer salad

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!

THE INGREDIENTS:

Buffalo Mozzarella
Tomato
Watermelon
Basil
Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper

THE RECIPE:

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.

Today was the perfect day to wear this white floral dress I picked up from Lulu’s. I had a tiny girlfriends breakfast complete with all of my favorites eggs, fruit, biscuits, bacon and cappuccinos.  And yesterday I was up in Malibu for my friend’s son’s 1st birthday party. Did everyone have a good weekend?

One of the cutest things about Balboa Island is the car ferry that brings you over to the Newport Beach Peninsula. We took that over and rented bikes to ride along the boardwalk. We took a break to soak up some rays at the beach. I wore this little jean romper for the ride, it’s so comfy and light weight and I love something easy in the summertime!
