  • 2 packages Love BEETs mild vinegar beets, 13 ounces
  • 5 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • ½ cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1 small seedless watermelon, about the size of a cantaloupe
  • 3 tablespoons pistachios, crushed


  • food processor
  • platter
  • cookie cutter - optional


  • Remove the rind from the watermelon. Cut it into thick 2-inch slices. Using a circular cookie cutter, cut the melon into rings. I was able to get about 7-8 rings from my melon. Any extra melon can be cut up and eaten separately.
  • Next, grab your food processor. Combine the feta cheese and whipped cream cheese. Blend for 4-5 minutes until smooth and creamy, no lumps. Be sure to scrape down the sides as needed. Set aside.

Assemble the salad:

  • Grab a large platter and spread the whipped feta on the bottom of the platter.
  • Layer the watermelon and sliced beets on top of the whipped feta.
  • Top with the crushed pistachios and serve!
