Watermelon fresh caprese with herb goat cheese

A summer twist to bring a bright refreshing taste to a herb goat cheese and fresh basil from the garden and balsamic reduction drizzle. The fresh melon really sweetens up the combo and I serve as a single bite. Be creative and serve larger as a sharable watermelon steak. Happy Summer!
