Watermelon and Feta Bites
Last week when the girls came over for happy hour and the kids made mud pies in the backyard we nibbled on these cool/sweet/salty bites of summer. They are super simple to throw together and look so cute. I assembled these bites a few hours in advance, (while little munchkin was sleeping and I had TWO hands for cutting watermelon) covered the dish in plastic wrap, and refrigerated until our friends arrived.
printer friendly recipe
2 tablespoons syrupy balsamic vinegar (il Fustino 25 Year Balsamic recommended)
1 small seedless watermelon, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 small bunch basil
5 oz. feta cheese, cut into 1" x 1" x 1/2" squares
Drizzle a serving dish with balsamic vinegar.
Skewer one cube of watermelon, one basil leaf, one feta slice, and another watermelon cube onto a decorative toothpick. Repeat until all ingredients have been used. Place Watermelon Feta Bites on balsamic drizzled serving dish.
