Watermelon Salad Skewers with Tomato, Basil, and Feta balance sweet and salty flavors, and are perfect for packing on your next summer picnic!
Ingredients
Sweet and Spicy White Wine Reduction:
  • ½ cup dry white wine (see Note)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon peppercorns
Skewers:
  • 16 cherry tomatoes
  • 32 basil leaves
  • 16 (about 1-inch) cubes of watermelon
  • 8 oz (227 g) feta, cut into 16 cubes
Other:
  • 16 small skewers
Instructions
  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.
Notes
Dry White Wine: If you don’t use wine, you can use white grape juice instead and omit the sugar.
