This delicious recipe for Marinated Watermelon Caprese Skewers pairs perfectly with Dusk 2019 Rosé.


36 (1 skewer)


  • 1 Package limited edition grill mates basil balsamic veggie marinade mix
  • 1/4 Cup(s) Oil
  • 1/4 Cup(s) Water
  • 2 Tablespoon(s) Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Mini seedless watermelon, (about 10 pounds), cut into 1-inch thick slices
  • 1/2 Pound(s) Provolone, thinly sliced
  • 6 Ounce(s) Prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • 1 Cup(s) Blueberries


1. Mix Marinade Mix, oil, water and vinegar in small bowl. Set aside.

2. Cut out star shapes from each watermelon slice with small star-shaped cookie cutter. Place in large resealable plastic bag. Add marinade; turn gently to coat well. Refrigerate 15 to 20 minutes.

3. Remove watermelon from marinade. Reserve any remaining marinade. Cut each watermelon star in half crosswise to form 2 thinner stars.

4. To assemble each skewer, thread 1 blueberry, 1 thin watermelon star, 1 prosciutto slice, 1 cheese slice and another thin watermelon star onto a short wooden skewer or toothpick, pressing together to make a star-shaped watermelon sandwich. Drizzle skewers with reserved marinade, if desired.
