Watermelon and Feta Skewers

2 tablespoons minced herbs (cilantro, parsley, basil, or mint)
4 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
16 wooden skewers
16 bite-sized cubes of seedless watermelon
16 1-inch by 1/2-inch slices of feta cheese
16 pitted Kalamata olives

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the herbs and the olive oil. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.
  2. Hold one of the wooden skewers in your hand and slide on a watermelon cube. Gently slide on a piece of feta cheese and top with a black olive. Make sure that there isn’t a lot of skewer sticking out at the top. You want people to be able to slide all three ingredients into their mouth at the same time. Repeat with the remaining skewers, watermelon, feta cheese, and olives.
  3. Line the skewers up decoratively on a serving platter and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Drizzle the herb oil over each of the skewers. Serve immediately.

Serves 4.
