Sweet, juicy, ripe, beautiful watermelon...I've been waiting for you. And just in time for Memorial Day weekend. That is the official start of summer entertaining as far as I'm concerned and whomever decided summer doesn't really start until June 21st needs to rethink that.
OK, maybe not really but I promise you that this beautifully plated salad will just be served in a giant bowl in a few weeks.
But let's not get ahead of ourselves because right now I'm in first summer meal planning mode and guests are going to be treated to this stunning salad. Fortunately, it's quite easy to make it look pretty and sweet watermelon and sharp feta cheese taste SO good together. Naturally there will be scraps left after you cut rings out of the watermelon but I consider those the cook's treats. Enjoy!
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Ingredients (2 Servings)
- 4 Slices of seedless watermelon, about 1/2" thick (about 2 slices per serving)
- 1/4 Cup feta cheese
- 1 Tablespoon cream cheese
- 1 Tablespoon milk or cream
- 1 Tablespoon fresh chopped chives or parsley
- 2 Cups mixed salad greens
Cut rounds (approx. 2 1/2") out of each slice of watermelon and layer 4 rounds with about a tablespoon of the cheese mixture spread between them. Serve over the salad greens and dress lightly with oil and vinegar or your favorite dressing.
