On the Line: Brian McReynolds, Amy Curran and Francisco Perez of Eat Chow, Part Three

Watermelon Bites with Feta and Mint

Watermelon ingredients:

16 1-inch cubes seedless watermelon, chilled
2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons mint, finely chopped

To plate – arrange the cubes on a platter and drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and virgin olive oil.
