Watermelon Feta Mint Skewers!


Recipe Redux Time! 

This month’s theme was Floral Flavors. I must confess this was an absolutely out-of-the-box challenge for me. I never cook with flowers and I don’t think I have ever eaten something with flowers in it (apart from teas). So, the first thing I did was type in google “edible flowers” and ended up in this website. The less out-of-the-box thing to me from their list was mint and so I said: “this is it!”

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to bring something to snack-on at a friends house. After spending about 1 hour looking for ideas and recipes with mint that could be turned into snack-kind-of-foods, I decided to make this watermelon-feta-mint skewers. So I went to the grocery store, got the ingredients, came home, cleaned the kitchen, prepared everything, made the skewers, took the pictures and then I put them in the fridge while I got dressed and ready to go to my friend’s house. 

When I finally got to my friends house, I realized I had forgotten the skewers.

You know, life playing jokes on me! I ended up bringing them to a picnic the day after and everyone devoured them. Happy ending to the story! :)



Ingredients:
-100g low-fat feta cheese
-1/2 a watermelon
-Mint leaves
-Balsamic vinegar for dressing

Kitchin-it!
1. Cube the watermelon and feta into small cubes
2. Assemble with skewers into layers of watermelon, feta and mint (in your preferred order)
3. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar
4. Enjoy!
