BECAUSE IT'S NTL WATERMELON DAY, AND DAMN IT, LIFE IS GOOD
A day that should be called- International Watermelon Day. After all why limit this celebrated holiday to our nation alone?

- watermelon, cubed
- 1/2 cup of mint
- 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
- 3 tbs. olive oil
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- 2 cups balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp. of honey
Heat a pan on the stove top and add 2 cups of balsamic vinegar and 1 tsp. of honey. Boil the mixture until it reduces to half the amount and resembles a syrupy liquid.
Meanwhile, cube the watermelon. Using a mortar and pestle, crush the mint, seeds, olive oil and salt until the mixture resembles a paste.
Assemble the watermelon with gorgonzola on top, topped with the mint gremolata and balsamic reduction.
