Watermelon? ... who knew it could taste THIS good?

ok, BIG family Christmas dinner last night.

One of my sisters made something I have never had before. Its a Greek dish.

Apparently.

Its also very simple.

Slices of Watermelon, each with a mint leaf and a slice of Fetta cheese. OMFG it is truly amazing.

Bear in mind that I hate Watermelon.

I am using the word “hate” to describe a piece of fruit, and I am using the word deliberately. I know Australians are supposed to love watermelon, but I don’t.

I consider eating watermelon to be an experience slightly more enjoyable than drinking paint.

And I pigged-out on this stuff. I couldn’t get enough.

My sister and I tried Watermelon and Mint… meh, wouldn’t do it a 2nd time.

We tried Watermelon and Fetta Cheese… double meh,

We tried Mint and Fetta… meh plus a side order of blech.

But all three together somehow create an amazing magic.

Watermelon, Fetta, and Mint Leaves.

Try it – you wont be dissapointed.

My sister told me that she has made it with moroccan spiced chicken as a salad. You can find a recipe for it here at TASTE.COM [although this one is watermelon, haloumi & mint… and it has onions – you really only need the salty goats cheese, mint and the melon]

    Try this as an alternative:

    - A whole watermelon
    - use an apple corer to put a hole along one side
    - add a funnel to the hole
    - over a few hours add 1/2 a bottle of vodka to funnel
    - chill and serve

    I hope I can remember to try it…I still haven’t tried making the sangria yet. Does it matter how thinly the watermelon is sliced?

  • we did wegdes that were about 1cm [half inch] thick, about the same for the fetta but about half as much fetta as melon per slice.
