This coupling has been on my mind since last summer. I love feta, I love watermelon, so the thought of pairing the two in a salad or something like that sounded simply marvelous. Feeling somewhat lazy and not really willing to make the trek to the grocery store to pick up any additional ingredients, I chose to make a small, simple appetizer that provides all the beauty of this sweet and salty combination. In the meantime, feel free to drool over this salad that inspired all of my desires. Perhaps a copy-cat (with variations, of course) will follow in the near future.
- toothpicks (if you're feeling fancy)
- watermelon, cut into large chunks
- fresh spinach
- crumbled feta
- balsamic vinaigrette
- Place one chunk watermelon atop one spinach leaf and top with a pinch of feta. Poke toothpick through spinach leaf, securing the watermelon in the spinach envelope. Drizzle lightly with balsamic vinaigrette. Serve to your most distinguished guests.
