Tomato, Watermelon and Basil Salad Skewers
These make a great handheld appetizer. For a salad, skip the skewers and toss everything into a serving bowl. For another spin, add a cube of feta cheese or a mozzarella ball.
You Will Need
12 small cubes seedless watermelon
6 cherry tomatoes, halved
12 small basil leaves
Extra-virgin olive oil
12 medium-length wooden skewers
1Slide 1 watermelon cube, a basil leaf and a cherry tomato half onto each skewer. Arrange on a plate then lightly drizzle balsamic vinegar and olive oil on top. Season with salt and serve.
I too would add some feta cheese. Because I’m always looking to make a recipe healthier, I’d use reduced-fat or fat-free feta. Both cheeses are delicious..
You have a wonderful blog!! I will have to make these this weekend. YUM
Ok, so I’m reading the recipe and thinking to myself that this would be perfection if it had a nice cube of briny feta cheese. And then I read the footnote : )
Wendi – we will let you in on a little secret – the plan was to add feta .. but, I forgot it at the store! I even had a list, but as usual came out with practically nothing on my list and 4 bags of groceries .. how does that happen?
