Watermelon and Goat Cheese Bites for #SundaySupper

Oh my goodness we have been having some Hot Hot weather! What a coincidence that this weeks #SundaySupper theme just so happens to be #BeatTheHeat #SundaySupper! When coming up with my recipe inspiration I thought of foods that didn't need the use of an oven or stove and that were cool and refreshing. These Watermelon and Goat Cheese Bites were just the thing! Refreshing watermelon cubes are topped with a fresh mint leaf and creamy chilled goat cheese for a bite sized appetizer that's so easy to put together and perfect to bring to any summer get together.



Makes about 20 servings
Ingredients:

20 (1-inch) watermelon cubes, seeds removed
20 small to medium mint leaves
8 ounces goat cheese
20 wooden toothpicks

Directions:

Roll goat cheese into 20 (3/4-inch) balls. Top each watermelon with a mint leaf. Place 1 goat cheese ball on top of the mint, and skewer with a wooden pick to secure. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.

This is the perfect appetizer for a warm day. It goes straight from the serving dish and right into your mouth. I love this recipe and will make it during my next summer get together for a cool appetizer. Your blog, also, is gorgeous. I joined.

So yummy! I love melon and cheese of any sort, and the bite from the goat cheese would be a nice compliment to the sweetness of the melon.

Thanks for sharing!

These are adorable, and I love goat cheese. I have had feta and watermelon, but haven't tried goat cheese yet.

Jerry said...

Simple, elegant and tasty. It's everything a summertime food should be. I think I'd use basil instead of mint, though.
