This appetizer is super simple to make and great for summer gatherings.

The combination of the sweet watermelon, salty feta and fresh basil is a crowd pleaser!


  • 1/2  Fresh Watermelon
  • 1 8oz block of firm, traditional Feta cheese – NOT crumbled
  • 1/2  Cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • Fresh Basil
  • Toothpicks


In a small saucepan over med-low heat, cook the balsamic vinegar until it is reduced to about half. Let cool. The balsamic vinegar reduction should be syrupy in texture. Cut watermelon into 3/4” cubes. Cut Feta cheese block into 3/4” x 1/4” cubes. Rinse basil and remove from stems.


Assemble: slide a cube of watermelon onto toothpick, followed by 1 basil leaf, then a chunk of feta cheese.

Place assembled skewers on serving tray and drizzle with balsamic reduction.


Serve and enjoy!
