Summertime snacks: watermelon balsamic mint skewers

By May 2, 2016Recipes

For a sweet, cool summer appetizer, these watermelon balsamic mint skewers hit the spot. These little bites are the perfect healthy snack for any summer holiday- Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July or just a random Saturday night.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 oz feta cheese, cubed into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 of a large watermelon, cubed into bite-sized pieces
  • Blackberries
  • Mint leaves
  • Skewers
  • Balsamic for drizzling

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cube the watermelon into bite sized pieces.
  2. Cube the block of feta.
  3. To assemble, stack the feta and watermelon with a mint leaf in between. Using a skewer or toothpick, skewer the stack.
  4. For added flavor, I used a reduced balsamic vinegar drizzle. To make the drizzle, add ½ cup balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan and reduce for 3-5 minutes until thickened. Drizzle over the skewers.
