I created these simple appetizers for a showroom at the Merchandise Mart. They wanted something that represented summer, had a lot of vibrant color and is plant-focused. On some of the skewers I switched out the feta cheese for tomatoes (unfortunately my yellow garden tomatoes weren’t quite ready yet- imagine the vibrant color had I used those.)
If you want to take it to the next level (or if the watermelon you choose doesn’t have a lot of flavor!), drizzle the skewers with my Mint Basil Dressing. It’s seriously summer in a jar.
Watermelon Cucumber Skewer
Feta cheese (block, not crumbled)
Cut the watermelon into bite-size cubes; cut the feta cheese into small cubes.
Use a ‘Y-Peeler’ to slice long strips off the cucumber.
Put one watermelon cube on a toothpick. Zigzag a cucumber strip on the toothpick, followed by a tomato and/or feta cheese cube. Repeat.
