Watermelon bites with feta and mint

“I started making these for summer parties in Queensland.  Sometimes hot canapes are just too much hassle and something cool and refreshing is the best option. Not only are they a delicious combination of sweet and salty with a burst of fresh mint, they’re also really easy to prep at home then put together at the venue.  Enjoy!”
