Ok, so I love skewers…. and mozzarella, basil and a yummy balsamic glaze drizzle! Definitely getting hungry just talking about it! In honor of these last days of summer I’ve created another fun summer skewer! Watermelon Balsamic Skewers to be exact. Did you know balsamic drizzled on…. well ANYthing is good but specifically drizzled on watermelon is amazing! Straight up amazing!

This recipe is so simple, can be made ahead and definitely requires no cooking! Watermelon balsamic skewers also make for great after school snacks.
Since we live in rainy Oregon we look forward to “living” outside in summer and that means a lot of portable, eat with one hand snacks! Be sure to pin this recipe as a reminder to make it all summer long!
Eat and Enjoy,

Watermelon skewers are a true summer pairing that makes a delicious and juicy snack or addition to any meal!
- Long wood skewers
- 2 pieces of cubed watermelon, make sure each cube is at least an inch square to be big enough to skewer
- 2 fresh ciliegine (the small size) mozzarella balls
- 3 fresh basil leaves
- Balsamic glaze for drizzling (make sure to use a glaze or thick reduction and not balsamic vinegar)
- Start by skewering one mozzarella ball down the skewer leaving a couple inches at the end.
- Next, fold in half one basil leaf and skewer it down next to the mozzarella.
- Then skewer the watermelon, trying to keep it centered so it doesn’t break.
- Fold in half another basil leaf and add it to the skewer.
- Add another mozzarella ball to the skewer.
- Fold in half the third basil leaf and skewer that as well.
- Finish up the skewer by adding the second piece of watermelon, carefully as you did with the first.
- Repeat for each skewer you make.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve. Once ready, or if serving immediately, drizzle with balsamic glaze or a thick balsamic reduction.
- Serve and enjoy!
These are best eaten right away or shortly after making. Sitting for too long in the frig causes the watermelon to release it’s juice.
