Watermelon, Feta and Mint Canapés

The 13th of 100 recipes chosen from the blog to go into my cookbook, these are just scrumptious and are created in seconds – my ‘go to’ canapés!

We first tried these at friends and neighbours, Chris and Suzy, who kindly invited us for lovely, leisurely Sunday evening drinks.  So gorgeous were these little delights that they make an appearance pretty much every time anyone comes around for supper or dinner! They go brilliantly with a glass of fizz, G&T or scrumptious white wine. The watermelon is fresh, sweet and juicy: the perfect foil for the earthy dryness of the feta; and the mint provides a lovely zing finish! All together with a little squeeze of lime, they are simply delicious! Give them a go: they’re quick, easy and just yummy!

Makes around 12 – 15 depending on how large or small you cut your chunks!

What you need…

100g watermelon, chopped into chunky, small slices

100g feta cheese, cut into chunks of a similar size to the water melon

A handful of mint leaves

A squeeze of fresh lime juice

A bunch of cocktail sticks

What to do…

Choose a pretty serving plate and stack these little lovelies together using a cocktail stick to pierce through each layer – watermelon on the bottom, then feta and on the top, either a couple of tiny mint leaves or a larger one folded.

Arrange on your plate and just before you want to enjoy them, give them a quick spritz of lime juice. So simple, so utterly yummy!
