Tomato and watermelon are an unlikely pair to many, but the juicy, refreshing fruits could not go better together. Chef José Andrés uses tomato seeds in this recipe, but suggests cherry tomatoes as a substitution.


  • 1/4 seedless watermelon, peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 8 plum tomatoes, quartered and cores removed for "fillets"
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoon lemon zest
  • 4 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, preferably a Spanish variety
  • 1 Tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Fresh herbs and herb flowers (such as lavender), for garnish

1. Combine the balsamic vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved. Turn off the heat and set aside to cool.

2. Starting with the watermelon squares, push the watermelon to the very tip of the skewer. Then skewer a basil leaf, then a tomato half. Continue with another watermelon, basil leaf, and tomato half. Place the skewer on a serving platter so it stands upright, using the lowest watermelon square as a base. Continue with the remaining skewers.

3. Drizzle the skewers with the reserved balsamic syrup and the olive oil. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Serve.

Watermelon skewers

I know, Watermelon Skewers are super good and summery and everyone loves (and makes) them). You may also want to try these Watermelon Feta Bites Appetizer or if you like meat, Watermelon Blue Cheese Prosciutto Bites. So good! Also try Grilled Watermelon with Smoked Salt and Jalapeno Rings!

I like to think of cooking as nothing about our ego (like bragging, I’m such a great cook), but more about just being creative with food, making it pretty, and thinking about the people who are going to eat it.

You know, when you’re cooking or preparing for company, how about just focusing on the guests, and thinking about maybe what you’d like to ask them, how to get to know them, or some creative table talk.

You can always change things up. The hosts that we’ve watched over the years have always had a knack for pulling it all together with good food, conversation, and really caring about their guests.

How to Make Balsamic Reduction

Balsamic reduction is just like what it sounds, balsamic vinegar reduced so that it is thicker and more concentrated. It is simple to make and there are all kinds of ways to use this delectable liquid to garnish your food. The beauty of balsamic reduction is it is thick so you can drizzle it and it will stick and not just run off the plate. Put a cup of balsamic vinegar in a non-stick pan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for about 10 minutes. When volume is reduced by half and the vinegar coats the back of a spoon you are done.

Options: some people like to add a little sugar or honey to their reduction at the beginning of the process. It is a matter of personal choice and the taste of the balsamic vinegar you are using. Taste your vinegar before you reduce it to determine if you want to add a little sweetener. Store the balsamic reduction in the fridge.

Or if you are lazy, like you are supposed to be in the summer, just buy a bottle of this delicious stuff already prepared here.

  • 8 plum tomatoes
  • 1 seedless watermelon, cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup Spanish extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Micro greens or thinly sliced mint leaves, for garnish

Step 1

Using a sharp knife, slice off the tops and bottoms off each of the tomatoes. Locate the dividing wall of flesh separating one segment inside the tomato. Slice into the wall and open up the flesh to expose the seeds. Remove the seeds and their pulp by slicing through the tomato core. Set aside the seeds. Your aim is to keep the pulp of the seeds together to create fillet of tomato seeds that are separate from the firmer tomato flesh. Repeat with each segment of the tomato.

Skewer one tomato seed fillet on each cube of watermelon. Arrange the skewers on a serving plate.

In a small bowl, mix the lemon juice with the oil, and vinegar and 1/2 of the lemon zest. Pour the dressing on the skewers. Sprinkle with sea salt, the remaining lemon zest and the greens. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
