  • 1/2 watermelon scooped into balls
  • 8 oz feta cut into squares
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • mint leaves for garnish


Balsamic Reduction

  • Add the balsamic vinegar to a small pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. 
  • Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until thickened and the sauce can coat the back of a spoon. 
  • Remove from heat. Cool to room temperature. This can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge. 

Assembling the Watermelon Feta Skewers

  • Using mini skewers, toothpicks, or appetizer sticks, carefully skewer a small square of feta cheese. Then add 1-2 watermelon balls. *
  • After you've used all of the feta cheese and the watermelon, carefully drizzle the balsamic reduction overtop each skewer.** If you drizzle the balsamic reduction overtop, these will need to be eaten immediately. Otherwise, you can store the skewers in the fridge for a few hours until ready to eat. They don't store long, so best to make these before you plan on eating them. ***


* If using toothpicks, you might only have room for 1 watermelon ball. 
**A little goes a long way, so don't get too excited with the balsamic reduction.
***I like to have the watermelon and feta skewers assembled and then a small bowl of the balsamic reduction next to the skewers. This way guests can drizzle it on themselves and it's fresh and ultimately looks better!
