I don’t know what it is, but fresh fruit and cheese taste so good together! My mind always immediately goes to apples and sharp cheddar, but this appetizer mixes it up a bit. Watermelon is in season, and I was really excited to incorporate it into one of my appetizers for my birthday party. The things you will need include:
- Cubed watermelon
- 1 block of feta cheese
- bundle of fresh mint
The hardest part is probably chopping up the watermelon…but if you are in a rush or don’t feel like cutting one up, you always buy pre-cut watermelon. I prefer cutting it up myself though, since it’s so much cheaper to buy a whole watermelon. I also don’t mind having left over watermelon to snack on 😀
I then cubed my feta, placed it on top of each bit of watermelon, and topped each bite with a bit of chopped mint leaf. I shoved toothpicks through each bite to make them easier for everyone to eat. I was really surprised by how well the salty, drier texture of the feta went with the juicy, sweet watermelon. The spring of mint is mostly ornamental, but it also added a nice little hint of flavor. I love this combination, and will definitely be making it again.
