Ingredients

  • 5 ounces feta cheese
  • ½ cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1 ripe lime, sliced thin
  • ¼ cup jalapeno , sliced thin
  • 2 ears sweet corn , grilled and removed from the cobb
  • 2 teaspoons Tajin spice, add to your liking
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup cucumber, sliced thin
  • ½ cup avocado, sliced thin and removed from the skin
  • ¼ cup scallions, as garnish
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro , chopped fresh and sprinkled over the top

Equipment

  • food processor
  • platter

Instructions 

Slice the watermelon:

  • Slice the ends off of the watermelon and set it upright. Carefully slice the rind off.
  • Cut the watermelon into thirds.
  • Then, slice the third into evenly sized rectangles. Set aside.

Prepare the whipped feta and vegetables

  • Next, you will grill your corn and remove the kernels from the cobb. Set aside.
  • In a food processor add the feta cheese and whipped cream cheese. Blend for 4-5 minutes until creamy and smooth, no lumps. Set aside.
  • Slice your cucumber, lime, and jalapeno in thin slices. Set aside.

Assemble the dish:

  • Grab a serving platter and spread about 2/3 of the whipped feta on the bottom of the platter.
  • Next, you’ll add the watermelon rectangles.
  • Drizzle the watermelon with the olive oil.
  • Then, you’ll begin to layer the cucumber, jalapeno and lime slices, making sure to spread them across the entire platter.
  • Add the remaining whipped feta to the dish. I used a spoon to make small dollops over the fruit and vegetables.
  • Top everything with the grilled corn kernels, sliced avocado, and chopped fresh scallions.
  • Sprinkle the tajin spice over the entire dish.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
