Easter is right around the corner and this is one of my new favorite refreshing bites! Perfect to prep ahead of time and you can make them in any shape you like. Cube it up and toss it all together for an easy salad. How cute would this be using the bunny cookie and the goat cheese being the fluffy white tail?!
Goat Cheese-Melon Bites
(Adapted from Southern Living)
1 small watermelon
1 (4-oz.) goat cheese log, softened
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Garnishes: fresh basil and freshly ground pepper
Cut watermelon into 1-inch-thick slices.
Cut slices into rounds, using a 2-inch cutter, mine was scalloped but you can use round or any shape you want.
Scoop just enough melon from tops to form indentations, using a melon baller.
Stir together goat cheese, 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil, salt, and 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper.
Spoon into indentations.
Chill 1 to 2 hours. Garnish, if desired.
