Few tastes compare to a sweet, ripe watermelon…last night, I devoured a few heavenly slices and it left me wanting more! Tonight, I thought I would try this lovely and very simple recipe by Stella Metsovas…if you don’t have feta on hand, you could substitute with goat cheese, ricotta or even queso fresco (all delicious alternatives!)…also, I might add a drizzle of aged balsamic or extra-virgin olive oil…yum! Let me know if you try it and what you think!
1 whole seedless watermelon
3 ounces french-style feta
Handful fresh basil
Cube the watermelon in 1″ cubes and set aside. Drain the feta. Using a sharp knife, cut the feta in small pieces. Assemble the cubed watermelon on a plate, scattering the feta pieces around the watermelon. Finally, tear the pieces of basil, dressing the dish with the basil.
