Thanks to AFoodCentricLife for this recipe and photo! This was possibly the most popular appetizer at a recent party. Shockingly simple, you can do this and amaze your guests. Where else you gonna get a bite that is crisp, fresh, juicy AND creamy, decadent and surprising??
Serving 6-8 (approximately 16 pieces)
- 2 small Dulcinea watermelons (or 1 large regular watermelon)
- 6-8 ounces goat cheese
- 1-2 tablespoons of milk
- 1 Persian cucumber
- A couple of limes
- Wash watermelons well. Cut a thin slice off one side to give you a flat surface. Roll melon to flat side (which provides stability for cutting the melon) and cut 1″ wide pieces of watermelon. Lay pieces flat and using a 1 1/4″-1 1/2″ round or square cookie cutter, cut pieces of melon.
- With the small end of a melon baller tool, cut little half rounds out of the center of the piece. Whip goat cheese and milk together until creamy. The amount you use will depend on your goat cheese. Place the cheese into a piping bag fitted with a star tip and pipe into the indentations. Garnish with a little slice of cucumber. Place on a flat plate, squeeze lime juice over the top and serve.
