Watermelon Prosciutto Bites

Watermelon Prosciutto Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 english cucumber
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, in block
  • 1 pkg prosciutto (4-6 ounces)
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Watermelon- approximately 1/4 of large Crescent Fruit and Vegetable watermelon, chilled
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, or more, to taste

Directions:

Slice cucumber into 1/4" rounds. Cut watermelon into 1/4" thick triangles large enough to fit on cucumber rounds. Slice feta cheese into 1/4" thick rectangles, also large enough to fit on cucumber rounds. Slice prosciutto into 1/2" wide strips, about 3 inches long. Wash basil and separate into individual leaves.
 
Pour balsamic into saucepan, bring to gentle boil, continue to boil gently until reduced by half, about 15-20 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon sugar until dissolved, taste, add more as desired. Cool.
 
To assemble appetizers:
Stack watermelon slices on cucumber slices, followed by feta cheese. Fold prosciutto strips into thirds and stack on feta. Follow this with 1 basil leaf. Thread stacks onto skewers. Serve with balsamic glaze as dipping sauce.
