Watermelon Mozzarella Basil Skewers are a refreshing summer appetizer perfect for all the summer parties, potlucks and BBQs!




  1. Start by skewering one mozzarella ball down the skewer leaving a couple inches at the end.
  2. Next, fold in half one basil leaf and skewer it down next to the mozzarella.
  3. Then skewer the watermelon, trying to keep it centered so it doesn’t break.
  4. Fold in half another basil leaf and add it to the skewer.
  5. Add another mozzarella ball to the skewer.
  6. Fold in half the third basil leaf and skewer that as well.
  7. Finish up the skewer by adding the second piece of watermelon, carefully as you did with the first.
  8. Repeat for each skewer.
  9. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Once ready, or if serving immediately, drizzle with balsamic glaze or a thick balsamic reduction.
  10. Serve and enjoy!


*These are best eaten right away or shortly after making. The watermelon will begin releasing juice the longer it sits.
