entertaining: watermelon cubes & feta cream

I can’t think of another fruit that pairs as well with feta as watermelon does. Ultra sweet and ultra salty combined in a healthy little treat. Does it get any better than that?

The credit for this however does not belong to me – we had something similar at my cousins wedding in Boston. I knew that at some point this summer I would need to make use of the quintessential summer fruit – so long as I had some feta cream to go along with it.

Watermelon Cubes & Feta Cream

  • 8 oz light cream cheese
  • 8 oz feta cheese
  • Watermelon, sliced into cubes (as uniform as possible)

Process the cream cheese and feta cheese until smooth. This recipe will make about 2 cups worth of feta cream.

Cut watermelon into cubes.

For easy assembly, place 1 cup of the feta cream into a ziploc bag. Snip the corner (small snip) and squeeze directly onto watermelon cube.

Come to think of it, it would be the perfect addition to those Labor Day Celebrations this weekend!

Enjoy your weekend!

    I love this combination! I made a watermelon and feta salad with mint earlier in the summer and a lot of people were grossed out by it! I love the sweet/salty combo though. So refreshing too!

    I love your appetizer recipes – always so simple, yet so elegant and perfect. I made a watermelon, basil and feta salad a couple of weeks ago, and I agree, watermelon and feta are the perfect pair.

    Watermelon and feta?? This is so clever – I never would have thought of this combo! The feta and watermelon would be so good for appetizers for a BBQ. I’m a huge fan of feta, so I’d be grabbing this dish first if I saw it!

    Happy Labor Day!
