SPROUTED KITCHEN’S WATERMELON + CUCUMBER SKEWERS
The skewers shown are available at World Market or here.
2 Tbsp. minced shallot
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 cup fresh chopped mint, divided
2.5 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
4 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 ounces feta cheese
sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1 mini, seedless watermelon, cut in 1” cubes
3 Persian cucumbers
INSTRUCTIONS FROM SPROUTED KITCHEN
In a small mixing bowl, combine the shallot, oregano, half of the mint, vinegar, oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Give it all a stir. Crumble in the feta and give it another stir, a few chunks are ok.
Shave the cucumbers into strands with a vegetable peeler, lengthwise. Assemble them on the skewer by putting a cube of watermelon, folding a slice of cucumber like an accordion, and then another cube of watermelon on top. Arrange them on your serving tray and drizzle the feta vinaigrette over the top. Garnish with a sprinkle of fresh mint, a grind of fresh pepper and serve. Viola, Sprouted Kitchen Skewers!
