  • Garnish with a tiny piece of cilantro or mint.
  • Assemble the Watermelon Savory Bites on a plate and if serving later, cover loosely with a plastic wrap and refrigerate.


Expert tips
  • Make sure to cut the watermelon right before assembling to retain the freshness and juiciness.
  • Garnish can be any kind of fresh herb in season like mint, cilantro, parsley or basil. I usually mix and match the herbs based on what I have growing in the backyard.
  • This is a great recipe to involve kids. They make wonderful helpers to cut out the cute watermelon pieces.
