I found the idea for these cute Watermelon and feta sticks here. I thought they would make the perfect finger food to take along to outdoor evening parties.
The start of the school year for us always brings a number of welcome to the school year drinks, so I made these for the first one of the year. They are such a refreshing light taste, with a dash of sweetness from the watermelon.
The watermelon and feta sticks were very easy to make. I made them up about three hours before I took them to the party and just kept them in the fridge uncovered and they kept beautifully It took me a couple of slices to work out the most efficient way to cut the watermelon.
I then found a smooth process to follow and had the batch made up in no time.
- 200 grams Danish Feta
- 2 kg watermelon
- 1 bunch mint
- 48 skewers
- Cut slices of watermelon about 3cm thick.
- Cut the skin of the watermelon and cut the ends of the watermelon so you have straight edges to make the squares.
- Cut the watermelon horizontally and then vertically to make your squares.
- Cut slices of feta about 4mms wide. Make the feta the same size as the watermelon and place on top of the watermelon squares.
- Tear off pieces of mint to fit the tops of the squares.
- Using the pointy end of the skewer press gently through the three layers.
- Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
