Watermelon-Feta Bites

How can it be the last day of June all ready? Summer is flying by. And I feel like it has hardly even started. But maybe that’s just Seattle. Around here we say that summer doesn’t officially start until after the 4th of July.

So I’m popping in real quick today with this here little post. I just whipped up these Watermelon-Feta Bites this morning and decided I should share then with you right away. They are the perfect little party appetizer for a hot summer day. And crazy easy to make. All you have to do is thread some watermelon and feta cheese cubes onto toothpicks along with a fresh basil leaf. That’s it. Not much too it.


And of course they are adorable and we all know that adorable food tastes better.

I’m taking these to a picnic this afternoon. I hope you are all out enjoying summer!



Watermelon-Feta Bites

Watermelon-Feta Bites


  • Block style feta cheese (not crumbled)
  • Seedless watermelon (you won’t need a whole one)
  • Small basil leaves
  • Toothpicks


  1. Place the block of feta cheese in your freezer for 10-15 minutes. This will make it easier to cut.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the watermelon into cubes, approximately 1/2 to 3/4 inch in size.
  3. Remove the cheese from the freezer and, using a sharp knife, cut the block into 1/2 inch cubes.
  4. To assemble, thread one watermelon cube, one basil leaf and one feta cube onto toothpicks. These can be stored in the refrigerator for a short time (1-2 hours) before serving, or served immediately.
