Summertime Watermelon Skewers

When invited to a BBQ most of us bring something in a bowl, something marinated, or something to drink. Well here is something on a stick! It is not marinated, it is chopped and assembled. The saltiness of the feta, the sweetness of the watermelon and the savoryness (not a word) of the prosciutto make for a perfect bite. So why not put three perfect bites on a stick, it is portable, delish, and so easy for your backyard BBQ.
1 medium watermelon
3 blocks goat’s milk Feta
¼ Lb. of Prosciutto

A tip while looking for ingredients is to use goat’s milk Feta, it is has less of a bite than regular Feta, and is not as salty and wont overwhelm the watermelon. Also get a sample of Prosciutto and you want it to be on the savory sweet side.  Making this is so simple, and comes in a few simple steps. Remove the watermelon rind and all the white parts, and cube into 2 inch cubes. Now cube the feta into 1 inch cubes. On your skewer put a piece of watermelon, then a piece of feta, and tear a small piece of Prosciutto and put on the skewer. Repeat three times, place on a beautiful plate and serve!
There is not a single person that won’t love this.
