Juicy Watermelon bites are a delicious appetizer that look pretty and taste good for the entire family plus they are quick and simply made for parties
This appetizer was originally featured on My Suburban Kitchen.com – I made a few alterations to the original –
Here’s what you will need:
- 1 large watermelon – cut into bite-size slices (try a medium thick square shape)
- 1 cup basil leaves – the picture shows arugula leaves but i think basil tastes better
- fresh mozzarella cheese – cut into bite size pieces (preferably smaller than watermelon slices)
- 6 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 cup balsamic dressing
- bundle of toothpicks
Place 1 slice of watermelon on a plate. Place one basil leaf on top. Next, add one slice of mozz cheese on top. Sprinkle a pinch of sugar on the cheese. Drizzle a dollop of balsamic dressing on top. Stick one toothpick in the middle of the creation and voila! You just created a delicious summer treat.
A good tip to remember is its best to set the ingredients up in an assembly line so the process moves along more quickly – plus your children can help too!
