Tomato, Watermelon, and Basil Bites

This is such a fabulously simple and refreshing appetizer. It could easily be made on much larger skewers or even as a large salad if you were serving this with a meal.

Here’s what you’ll need…

Ingredients (quantities depend on how many you hope to make – I made about 40)

One container cherry tomatoes
One small package of pre-cut watermelon
Fresh basil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Extra virgin olive oil and salt for drizzling


In a small saucepan, simmer equal parts of balsamic vinegar and sugar. Stir occasionally, until sugar is melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Slice your tomatoes in half, and cut pieces of watermelon that are about the same size as the tomatoes. Tear your basil leaves into small pieces, again about the size of your tomatoes and watermelon. Skewer tomatoes, basil, and watermelon onto your toothpicks or skewers. Drizzle with your balsamic syrup, a little bit of olive oil, and some freshly cracked salt.
