Summer is upon us, and with it comes the craving for light, refreshing, and easy-to-make dishes. You're going to love this new favorite for warm-weather gatherings – Watermelon, Mozzarella, and Prosciutto Skewers! This easy-to-make appetizer combines sweet and savory flavors in one bite-sized treat. Whether you're hosting a backyard BBQ, a picnic in the park, or a simple family dinner, these skewers are the perfect summertime treat.

When it comes to selecting the perfect watermelon for your skewers, Melon 1 watermelons stand out as a top choice. Known for their exceptional sweetness and juiciness, Melon 1 watermelons are carefully grown and harvested to ensure the highest quality. These watermelons are sourced from reputable farms in the USA that prioritize sustainable farming practices and quality control. Choosing a Melon 1 watermelon means you’re getting a fruit that is not only delicious but also responsibly grown.

Selecting the perfect watermelon can sometimes be a daunting task, but with a few tips from our friends at Melon 1, you can ensure you pick a winner every time. Look for a watermelon that feels heavy for its size, as this indicates a high water content and juicy flesh. The skin should be firm and free of major blemishes, with a creamy yellow spot on one side where it rested on the ground to ripen – this is also known as "the yellow belly." Once you’ve brought your watermelon home, store it in a cool, dry place. And sure you give the outside of your watermelon a good rinse before cutting!

Watermelon is not only a delicious summer treat but also a powerhouse of nutrition. It is composed of about 92% water, making it an excellent way to stay hydrated during the hot summer months. Watermelon is also low in calories but high in essential vitamins and minerals. It’s an excellent source of vitamins A and C, which are important for skin health and immune function. Additionally, watermelon contains lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that has been linked to heart health and reduced risk of certain cancers.
