WATERMELON BITES



I was looking for something out
of the ordinary to serve for
my 4th of July festivities
and I came across this 
recipe I found in 
Good Housekeeping
I could not resist to give it a try.
It was not easy to create square
to serve these Watermelon Bites.
I change the name in the magazine is
called Feta-Watermelon Stacks
here is an image from GH

Here I will show you the recipe I
serve inn their version. 
and how I added
a extra fancy ingredient to serve to my guest.
 Is not hard to take any recipe and
modified to make it your own.

INGREDIENTS

Feta Cheese cut into 1-in squares (1/4 inch thick)
1 cup basil leaves
1 Seedless watermelon cut in squares (about 40)
3 Tablespoon of olive oil
1/4 tsp of Fresh Ground Black Pepper

As per Good housekeeping they added salt
I did not since Feta contains plenty of it.


INSTRUCTION HOW TO CUT A WATERMELON INTO SQUARES

TOOLS
SHARP KNIFE

First cut the seedless watermelon in half
Cut in quarters
Cut 4 horizontal lines on both side of the (quarter watermelon)
Cut Vertical cuts from top straight down to the rind
continue across the entire piece
cut around the base
you could scoop or tip over a bowl it will fall off.




HORIZONTAL CUT


VERTICAL CUTS DOWN TO THE RIND

SQUARE SHAPE LIKE THIS

THIS IS SCOOPING THEM OUT


 TIP OVER A BOWL THEY COME OUT LIKE THIS

STACK INSTRUCTION
Square Watermelon
Square Feta cheese
Top with one leave of Basil
To serve add a Toothpick
Drizzle with Olive Oil (3 Tablespoons)
Sprinkle Fresh Ground Black Pepper



Watermelon



This is how I added an extra fancy touch to this
recipe and made it my own.
You could do the same and share let me know.
I top it off with a shrimp and drizzle with
lime, extra virgin olive oil and fresh ground pepper.
It was a hit and guest requested for seconds.





 Enjoy

Always Beautify Your Plate!!!
