This isn’t so much a recipe as an easy set of instructions. I made these skewers for a wedding that I catered recently, and they were a huge hit! We’ve all seen lackluster fruit trays at weddings and events, so I wanted to give the watermelon some pizzazz. Mint, lime, and a dusting of flaky salt did the trick. Putting them on skewers makes a super easy, utensil-free party appetizer. You can always skip the skewers and serve the watermelon in a bowl for a smaller party. Or add a skewer to a drink for a two-in-one garnish and appetizer!
The amounts of the ingredients are very inexact, so taste as you go! For reference, a little 5-6 lb sugar baby watermelon will make about 3 dozen skewers, and you’ll need 2 limes, about 2 tablespoons of chopped mint, and +/- 1 teaspoon of salt. See the notes below for other ways to jazz them up or substitute ingredients.
