1/2 watermelon, scooped into balls

balsamic glaze
pink himalayan sea salt

Blackberries and FetaOn a skewer, add a melon ball, piece of feta (push the feta onto the stick verrry slowly), basil leaf, blackberry, followed by another melon ball.

Watermelon and Feta Skewer with BalsamicSprinkle the skewers with pink himalayan sea salt, shred and add leftover basil, then drizzle the skewers with balsamic glaze (so good!!). This is my all time favorite, readymade balsamic glaze… it’s the perfect consistency and packs a lot of flavor for a relatively healthy glaze. I find myself drizzling it on all sorts of food.
