Be sure to see the recipe card below for the full listing of ingredients, instructions, notes, and estimated nutritional information.

  • Watermelon – You will need about 2 cups of cubed watermelon. For special occasions and holidays, you can make the watermelon pieces into your favorite shapes with small cookie cutters such as circles, stars, etc.
  • Feta cheese – you will need a block of feta cheese then to cut it into similarly sized cubes as the watermelon.
  • Balsamic glaze – Use my easy homemade balsamic glaze recipe or your favorite store-bought.

Optional Ingredients

  • Fresh Basil Leaves – add them on top of the feta cheese cubes and between the watermelon. The basil will add a watermelon caprese salad flavor to the appetizer.

Assemble each appetizer bite by layering two cubes of watermelon with a cube of feta cheese between them onto a toothpick or cocktail skewer.

Refrigerate the tray of these if not ready to serve. Then, right before serving, drizzle them with balsamic glaze. The combination of flavors is sweet, savory, and absolutely scrumptious and always makes this a hit at any gathering!

Storage Tips

One of the best things about this warm-weather favorite appetizer is that it can easily be made ahead of time! When planning a gathering or celebration, I find that any make-ahead foods are so helpful!

To make ahead. Prepare Watermelon Feta Bites without adding the balsamic glaze drizzle. Store in an airtight container or covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Before serving, drizzle with balsamic glaze.

To freeze. I do not recommend freezing this recipe.
