I am a big fan of non-traditional salads and one of my absolute favorite summer recipes is Nigella Lawson’s Watermelon, Feta and Black Olive Salad. I look forward to summer every year just so I can have this salad. It is exactly as she describes – improbable, savory, and refreshing. The only things I don’t follow in the recipe is I use Kalamata olives and do not include the parsley. I love it with just the mint.
Tonight, I decided to change it up and make these fun appetizer skewers using the same recipe. It’s best to combine everything with the lime juice and then make the skewers to keep the same refreshing flavor as the salad. These skewers make a great appetizer for a dinner party, picnic, or boat food. Nothing says party food to me more than bite sized food on fun skewers. You can buy the adorable Bamboo Skewers on Amazon.
