Watermelon Skewers with Honey Lime Vinaigrette and Fusion® Thai Ginger Salt

Like summer on a stick, a stunning dish is created when a honey, lime, fresh ginger and pickled jalapeño vinaigrette meets ripe, juicy watermelon. To make it even more delicious, we top it with crumbled feta cheese, freshly torn mint, and a healthy sprinkle of Fusion® Thai Ginger Salt. The vibrant mix of watermelon sweetness, jalapeño heat and zest from the ginger and lime is a delightful surprise to the senses. It is the perfect cooling accompaniment to spicy grilled steaks and ribs on a hot summer day.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the first 6 ingredients (pickled jalapeños through lime juice). Slowly pour in olive oil while whisking to emulsify. Add Pacific Blue Kosher Flake Sea Salt and adjust ingredients to taste. Set aside.
  2. Cut watermelon into medium-sized cubes. Thread about six onto each skewer, alternating with folded lime slices.
  3. Place skewers on a large platter and spoon over vinaigrette, making sure to evenly distribute between the layers and skewers. Top with crumbled feta, torn mint and Thai Ginger Salt.
  4. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
