Summer has official graced us with her presence and with the arrival of summer comes a whole host of joyous summer activities, namely, the BARBECUE.
I love summer barbecues more than anything; and this past weekend my friends and I opened the season strong with an epic potluck bbq.
I always call upon my salad making skills when it comes to my contribution to any potluck; but being that the sun was shining, I decided to do something different with the easiest appetizer you may ever make.
From start to finish, this easy appetizer is 15 minutes of preparation. Cutting the watermelon is by far the most time consuming component of this watermelon “pizza”.
But the quality of your ingredients is paramount in a dish this uncomplicated; since every single ingredient is on display, it important to focus on quality. Goat’s milk feta cheese offers a creamy tartness to balance the sweetness of the watermelon; while the herbs can be completely bespoke- any combination of herbs is likely to taste divine. I chose to use mint and basil, because there’s nothing that says summer to me, quite like basil and mint.
The easiest appetizer you will ever make, that will dazzle your guest with it’s aesthetic and OMG deliciousness, The Watermelon Pizza.
Easy Appetizer Watermelon Pizza
1 small watermelon
3/4 cup goat’s milk feta cheese, crumbled
2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
1 tsp pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
Slice the watermelon into pizza shaped slices by cutting it in half lengthwise, and then again lengthwise; and finally into triangle shapes.
Lay the slices flat, sprinkle the feta, mint, basil and pepper; and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.
And VOILA, a summer appetizer that is sure to please!
