Serving food on skewers never seems to go out of style, whether for a meal or appetizer, and that concept certainly applies to this recipe. After all, skewers allow for a great combination of flavors as well as easy preparation. With this appetizer, simply select your melon (watermelon or cantaloupe both work wonderfully!), and slice it into square, bite-size pieces. You could even use an ice cream scoop to create melon balls instead if you find that easier! As for the fresh greens, basil leaves are a popular choice. These skewers are delicious just as the recipe is written, and they can also be easily customized by adding other ingredients such as mozzarella balls or avocado pieces.

Loved this quick appetizer. I used mint leaves instead of the greens.
Was very delicious
