Lime Infused Watermelon Cubes with Minted Feta


Lime Infused Watermelon with Minted Feta


Guilty pleasure confession: I love to sit with an entire, chilled watermelon half on my lap and chow.  Give me a spoon and 15 minutes and there will be nothing but rind and one happy soul left over.  However, that’s when I’m alone, without a witness, as it looks like I am about 7 months pregnant after I finish.  Here is a refined twist on this summer staple.  A simple marinade of lime zest and juice, olive oil and sea salt bring out the full flavor and sweet juice of this amazing melon.  I love the creamy, earthy flavor of the feta and the mint grounds and refreshens the bite with its herbal notes.  No need for a spoon either, these cubes are bite size!

INGREDIENTS:

  1. 1/2 large watermelon, sliced into 1″ cubes

  2. zest and juice from 2 limes

  3. 3 Tbs olive oil

  4. pinch of cracked sea salt

  5. 1/3  cup feta

  6. 1/4 cup mint chiffonade

PREPARATION:

  1. Place watermelon cubes in a large bowl and toss with lime zest and juice, olive oil and sea salt.  Chill for at least 1 hour.

  2. With a pairing knife, scoop a half circle out form one side of the cube, appox 1/3″ diameter to create a “bowl” for the feta.

  3. Stuff with feta and garnish with mint chiffonade.  Serve chilled on tray and drizzle with remaining lime-juice from bowl.  The watermelon acts like a sponge so it is nice to have it sitting on a little tasty liquid.

Happy Dog Days…
