There are only so many days of summer … celebrate them ALL! These Summer Watermelon Salad bites provide a blend of unexpected flavors that combine to say SUMMER!
Tiny bit of Ricotta Salata
Fresh mint leaves
Juice from half a lemon – preferably a Meyer lemon
Fresh ground pepper, to taste
Slice watermelon into one-to-two-bit bits (squares, circles, or whatever you like – use cookie cutters if you like) and arrange on platter. Squeeze Meyer lemon over the watermelon; some of it will remain on the plate – that’s fine, the watermelon will soak it up. Place a mint leaf and a tiny bit of Ricotta Salata on each watermelon bite – seriously, a small bit – you want this to be a little salty, but not have the cheese overwhelm the mint and watermelon. Grind just a bit of pepper over all of it, and serve!
