Watermelon and feta

It seems to be some evil unwritten law in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts that the 4th of July absolutely has to be hot and humid. It's my very least favorite weather, with showers that "don't take," hair that's never ever good, and legs that stick to my leather car seats. Anyway, I wanted to make something cooling for our family's annual 4th of July party over in Marblehead yesterday—(thanks again Becky and Kevin!), so I made skewers of mini watermelon and feta squares, shown below, and just before serving I placed a chiffinade of mint over it.  For a more formal appetizer I combined it with arugula leaves and a balsamic glaze, shown above. Nice combo; give it a try if you've never had it.
