Watermelon Tomato And Feta Cheese Skewers

I was on a roll this summer creating a number of new recipes using watermelon, and loved the way the sweetness of the melon melds so well with savory ingredients. We entertain a lot in the summer and I am often trying out new ideas for healthy finger food that can be put together quickly yet is still full of flavor. Since I fell in love with watermelon salad, I knew that watermelon and tomatoes were are great combination so I decided to create skewers with chunks of watermelon and cherry tomatoes, and then added small chunks of feta cheese which created a similar flavor to the salad. These skewers are delicious and low in fat, and look pretty when served arranged on top of the watermelon rind as shown.

Why Healthy

  • Watermelon is packed with some of the most important antioxidants, is an excellent source of vitamin C and a very good source of vitamin A, notably through its concentration of beta-carotene. Watermelon is also a source of the potent carotenoid antioxidant, lycopene.
  • Tomatoes are rich in Lycopene, vitamin C, potassium, iron, and fiber.
