Watermelon Caprese Skewers

As I sit here trying to decide how to pitch you these caprese skewers I think to myself, what are their selling points? Obviously, they are tasty and healthy but there must be more. Then it hits me. Not only is this a no-cooking required snack but it is also a no clean-up required. Sometimes I have these days where I feel like making something yummy but don’t feel like trashing my kitchen and the clean-up stands in my way. You will only need three kitchen items to make these gorgeous kabobs, a knife, a melon baller and a cutting board. If that’s not incentive, then I got nothin’.

What you need:

1 small seedless watermelon

Cherry tomatoes

Mini Mozzarella balls

Fresh mint

Balsamic Vinegar

Sea Salt

BBQ skewers


How to:

Using a melon baller, scoop some pretty balls of watermelon. That’s literally it. Stack your skewers however you fancy them. I alternated flavors but watermelon, tomato, and 2 mozzarella is a good looking order as well. Once assembled, drizzle some balsamic vinegar across the top and give em’ a sprinkle of salt.

** This is also a great vegetarian option for a BBQ**

Love, Hayls

    yum! I was craving watermelon the other day and thinking how good it would be in place of tomatoes on bruschetta with mozzerella. This looks so easy and delicious!

    do you eat the mint when you eat the watermelon? i’m confused how to eat them.

      Mint leaves are edible if that’s what you’re getting at. I’m fairly sure they’re not just garnish here.

      Personally, I like raw mint, so I’d eat them anyway even if they WERE supposed to be garnish.

    This looks so good, my mouth is actually watering. A little sprinkling of chopped basil or Thai basil on top might also be a nice touch!
