Watermelon Salad with Whipped Feta
Prep time: 15 mins
Total time: 15 mins
Ingredients
  • ½ large watermelon cubed *see notes*
  • fresh mint, roughly chopped for serving
Whipped Feta:
  • 5 ounces feta, crumbled
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • ½ lemon of lemon juice
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
Instructions
  1. In a blender add the feta, cream cheese, and lemon juice. Blend it until somewhat smooth, scraping down the sides when necessary.
  2. Add the olive oil to the blender and blend that in there until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary. Finally add the heavy cream and repeat the same step, until it is completely smooth (some very small granules of feta are okay).
  3. On each plate add a tablespoon sized glob of feta near one of the edges of the plate and with the back of your spoon run it through the whipped feta in the direction of the opposite end of the plate to create a swooshed effect. Add the cubed watermelon along the swoosh arranging it as you please and stacking where you like. Repeat this for each plate and garnish with mint. Serve immediately
Notes
I like to cube my own watermelon because the texture and flavor is better since it's freshly cut. It's ridiculously easy and I cut mine using this fantastic and easy method here.
