Description

Cucumber Watermelon Appetizers with Blue Cheese are the perfect cool snack on a hot summer day. Top cucumber rounds with cubes of watermelon, salty blue cheese crumbles, blueberries, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of kosher salt and chopped fresh parsley.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 24 (1/4 inch) cucumber rounds, sliced from an English cucumber
  • 24 (1/2 inch by 1 inch) watermelon cubes
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 24 blueberries
  • 23 teaspoons honey
  • kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. Place cucumber rounds on a large platter. Top with watermelon cubes.
  2. Top watermelon with some blue cheese crumbles and press down lightly.
  3. Add a blueberry to each appetizer and press down lightly so the berry sticks to the cheese.
  4. Drizzle with the honey sparingly. You just want a few drops of honey on each appetizer.
  5. Sprinkle with kosher salt and parsley.
  6. Serve immediately. The appetizers can also be made in advance. Assemble up to Step 3 and refrigerate up to 2 hours. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with kosher salt and parsley just before serving.

Notes

  • Make sure to use an English cucumber to make watermelon appetizers. These are the ones that are long and skinny and have a thin peel. They also are less watery, have smaller seeds and are sweeter than the traditional cucumber.
  • Cut the watermelon into cubes about 1/2 inch thick and 1 inch wide. This is the perfect bite sized piece.
  • Blue cheese adds a salty, sharp flavor to the appetizers. Goat cheese, Gorgonzola and feta are excellent substitutes.
  • Drizzle the watermelon appetizers sparingly with the honey. Just a few drops makes for tasty tidbits.
  • The appetizers can also be made in advance. Assemble the cucumber rounds and top with watermelon cubes, blue cheese and blueberries. Refrigerate up to 2 hours. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with kosher salt and parsley just before serving.
