    Spear a cube of cheese to the bottom of the skewer with a flat side down so the skewer will stand on a platter. Add watermelon cube, basil leaf, and olive to each skewer. Arrange the skewers on a platter and refrigerate. Just before serving, drizzle with vinaigrette and serve cold.

Alternative

Cantaloupe Mozzarella Bites: Substitute cantaloupe for watermelon and mozzarella for feta. Spear cantaloupe and mozzarella on skewers, arrange on a platter, and refrigerate. Just before serving, scatter the basil over the top, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve cold.
