Mini Fruit on a stick Skewers Appetizers - 52 Catering Recipes

Pin It Now!

Great for a BBQ (Easy and can be done in advance)... These little fruit appetizers are always popular.

Serve standing up in a glass of White Wine as a garnish to make it special (Extra tip... Freeze em before putting in the glass)


Keep scrolling down for this easy to follow recipe...

OK... Here's what I did...

Mini Fruit on a stick Skewers Appetizers

  • 1 Fresh Pineapple, sliced and cored; cut into 36 fifty cent piece size pieces
  • 1 Fresh Watermelon, Sliced thin and cut into 36 quarter size pieces
  • 1 package (at least 36) Fresh Raspberries
  • 1 Package (at least 36) Fresh Grapes
  • 1 Package (at least 36) Fresh Blueberries
  • 36 Long Skewers
Cooking Directions
  1. Slice the Watermelon first. Cut thin slices and use a decorative cookie cutter (I used a small biscuit cutter) to make the right size pieces (You can eyeball small squares if you do not have the right size cookie cutter).
  2. Put the pieces in a strainer and allow to drain for 1 hour. This keeps the watermelon from leaking water into the tray.
  3. Slice and cut the pineapple into pieces. The edges closest to the removed rind are firmer and hold the skewer best.
  4. Prepare an assembly station with the individual fruit arranged in order, smallest to largest.
  5. And skewer each piece of fruit.
  6. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve and ENJOY!


This simple recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Simple but Next Level Dishes"!

Kind of an odd title for these posts. But the longer sentence is... Simple recipes that are easy and inexpensive that will take your cooking to the next level... Things like easy pickled items (I always have a jar of Pickled Red Onions for sandwiches in my fridge). Or how about the easiest bread to make in the world... Beer Bread that is tasty on it's own but also makes a wonderful open face pizza style sandwich... With easy to make Tomato Sauce. Or how about Roasting Garlic for a spread on toast points for a unique appetizer. Infusing Oil with Herbs or spices or spicy peppers. Or how about making your own BBQ sauce. Nothing sets you apart as a grill master like setting out a jar of your own specialty BBQ Sauce.

You get the idea. These recipes are very simple, take very little time but will set you apart as a better cook...
