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.
