Savoury watermelon bites: a festive treat

By: Dental Holistix

Indulge in a Christmas treat that’s not only super-easy but also guaranteed to tantalise your taste buds. These savoury watermelon bites are here just in time to celebrate melon season! A delightful combination of the sweet juiciness of watermelon and the savoury notes of feta and balsamic glaze.

Ingredients

  • Fresh watermelon, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • Feta cheese, cubed
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Balsamic glaze

Method

Cut and cube: Take your fresh watermelon and carefully cut it into bite-sized cubes. Similarly, cube the feta cheese into bite-sized portions.

Assemble the bites: Grab toothpicks or small skewers, and carefully thread a cube of watermelon, followed by a cube of feta, and finally, a fresh basil leaf.

Drizzle with balsamic glaze: Once your bites are beautifully assembled, it’s time to elevate the flavours with a drizzle of balsamic glaze. This rich and tangy addition will bring out the savoury notes of the feta while complementing the sweetness of the watermelon. Don’t be shy–let the glaze cascade over the bites for a stunning presentation.

Ready to serve: Your savoury watermelon bites are now ready. Arrange them on a serving platter or dish of choice.

Customisation tips

Meat Lovers: If you’re craving a bit of meaty indulgence, consider incorporating prosciutto into the mix. The saltiness and rich flavour of prosciutto will work beautifully with the sweet juiciness of the watermelon and the creamy notes of the feta.

Greens enthusiasts: Think about garnishing your savoury watermelon bites with micro-greens. These tiny, tender leaves pack a punch of freshness, adding a visually appealing and herbaceous element to the bites.
