I don’t know what it is about food on sticks that makes food awesome, but somehow it does! I love assembling and serving party food on sticks or skewers as they’re so easy to just grab and go.
These cucumber feta watermelon skewers are a yummy bite-size appetizer to serve with summer cocktails and are so easy to make.
The name of the recipe gives it all away – you just need cubes of watermelon, cucumber, and Feta to make these light bites, as well as balsamic vinegar to make a glaze to drizzle over. You could add a mint leaf to make the watermelon skewers a little bit fancy if you like!
The recipe makes 25 skewers, but it’s so easy to scale up or down. The balsamic glaze can be made in advance and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
With summer in full swing, there is just something about enjoying dishes with ingredients fresh from your garden or local market, which makes the whole dining experience better. These colorful skewers of goodness also bring a fun burst of color to your table.

How Do I Make Cucumber Feta Watermelon Skewers?
Just check out the recipe card below with full ingredients, instructions, and demonstration photos. You can print the card out too (don’t worry, the pics don’t print to save your ink!).
- ⅓ cup Balsamic vinegar
- 8oz / 225g block feta cheese
- Fresh mint leaves, optional
- 25 toothpicks
- To make the balsamic glaze, place the vinegar in a small pot over low heat. Cook for 5-8 minutes, swirling around every now and then.*
- When you see it begin to look like a syrup and the liquid has reduced, shut off the heat - it will thicken upon standing.
- Cut the feta into cubes. Since it is basically a large square, you can cut it into 5 rows of 5 cubes to get 25.
- Cut watermelon into cubes about the same size.
- Cut the cucumber into cubes, about the same size. This can be a little tricky due to the shape of the cucumber. Try to cut lengthwise first down the middle, taking both sides off, then cut cubes.
- To assemble the skewers place a cucumber cube down first, place a Feta cube on top, and finally a cube of watermelon. (You can always change the order of how you put them together.)
- Gently push a toothpick through the middle to secure all the pieces together.
- If using mint, push a mint leaf down over the toothpick onto the watermelon. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Drizzle with balsamic glaze right before serving. (If the reduction has gotten too thick, put it on the stove again over low heat for a few seconds to thin out a bit. You can also add a small amount of water to help the process).
*Making a large batch of balsamic reduction can take up to 30 minutes, however, because such a small amount is used it will not take that long.
