Chef Louise Mellor- Evite

The movie August:Osage County takes place in Oklahoma, so what better way to celebrate this Oscar-nominated flick than with watermelon feta cheese skewers? After all, Oklahoma is nationally-known for its watermelon festival.

Ingredients

  • 12 wooden skewers
  • 12 one-inch cubes of firm feta cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 pitted kalamata olives
  • 12 small basil leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 medium seedless watermelon cut into 12 one-inch cubes

Directions

In a small bowl, whisk to combine the olive oil, honey, balsamic vinegar, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.

Spear a cube of cheese to the bottom of the skewer with a flat side down so the skewer will stand on a platter. Add watermelon cube, basil leaf, and olive to each skewer. Arrange the skewers on a platter and refrigerate. Just before serving, drizzle with vinaigrette and serve cold.
