Watermelon Salad Skewers with Tomato, Basil, and Feta balance sweet and salty flavors, and are perfect for packing on your next summer picnic!
Sweet and Spicy White Wine Reduction:
  • ½ cup dry white wine (see Note)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon peppercorns
  • 16 cherry tomatoes
  • 32 basil leaves
  • 16 (about 1-inch) cubes of watermelon
  • 8 oz (227 g) feta, cut into 16 cubes
  • 16 small skewers
  1. Add all ingredients for the white wine reduction to a small skillet over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook until it’s reduced to about 2 tablespoons, about 7 to 10 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and then cool to room temperature.
  2. For the skewers, thread a cherry tomato onto a skewer, and then a basil leaf, feta cube, basil leaf, and then watermelon cube. Repeat until you have 16 skewers.
  3. Serve immediately, with the white wine reduction drizzled on top.
Dry White Wine: If you don’t use wine, you can use white grape juice instead and omit the sugar.
