Watermelon is the quintessential summer fruit. All it takes is the smell of sweet watermelon to bring me back to summers lying by the pool, sunglasses on, Boom Box playing 90’s music, with a large bowl of watermelon on my lap.  That was the LIFE.

I recently attended the Everything Food Conference, where foodies from around the world get together to learn, grow, and definitely EAT. The first day we met with so many companies and they all had samples! One of the standouts was these beautiful watermelon and fresh mozzarella skewers. At first glance, the skewers looked like tomato caprese salad skewers! Oh no. They were a combination of sweet watermelon and creamy cheese and I was so impressed. I went back for seconds…..and maybe thirds!

I changed it up a little and made a simple honey lime drizzle to put on the top of the fresh mozzarella watermelon skewer. The honey lightly sweetens the fresh mozzarella and the lime brings the freshness.  These are perfect for a BBQ or casual get together. We even serve it as a fun appetizer with burgers or chicken sandwiches.

Here’s how you make these Fresh Mozzarella Skewers with Honey Lime Drizzle:

1. Start off with fresh SEEDLESS watermelon. It makes it so much easier! A melon baller is used to make those perfect round circles. If you don’t have one already, this is one of my favorite kitchen suggestions because it makes the most beautiful fruit salads. Here are a favorites — OXO Good Grips Melon Baller OR Farberware Classic Double Melon Baller.

2.  Use Fresh Mozzarella Ciliegine Balls. These are the ideal size! Using fresh mozzarella makes it so creamy. You can find them in the refrigerated section next to the fresh mozzarella balls.

3.  Use a skewer.  This is where it gets fun since there are so many choices! I will link some options — Bamboo Paddle Pick Skewer 7 inch   OR  Diamond Colored Skewers. I found the Diamond plastic cocktail straws and used the clear ones as skewers. They are the ideal size and don’t have sharp edges.

4. Make a sweet honey lime dressing. This is as simple as gets! Stir together creamy honey, freshly squeezed lime juice, and lime zest. Drizzle on the top of the watermelon fresh mozzarella kabobs. The lime zest gives the kabobs are bright color too!

    So refreshing! The honey-lime sauce is the rockstar of this dish. I also think strawberries would be a good addition. Thanks for the recipe!
