Brian mentioned that watermelon is not only in season right now, but it's insane. We think he means insanely abundant and tasty. I'll admit to not eating much watermelon, but when we did order this, it exceed our expectations.
Read our interview with Brian, Amy and Francisco, Part Two.
And now, on to Part Three. . . .
Watermelon Bites with Feta and Mint
16 1-inch cubes seedless watermelon, chilled
2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons mint, finely chopped
2 teaspoons shallots, finely chopped
Virgin olive oil
Using a small melon baller or 1/4 teaspoon measuring spoon, scoop a small well in each watermelon cube, keeping the walls of the cube intact.
In a small bowl, mash together the feta, mint and shallots; season with pepper. Stuff the wells of the watermelon cubes with the feta mixture.
To plate - arrange the cubes on a platter and drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and virgin olive oil.
