Watermelon carpaccio with feta cheese, a fresh idea!

Watermelon carpaccio with feta cheese, a fresh idea!

When I served this, at first people thought this was beef. Then when they took a close look they realized it was watermelon.

This is super quick and it makes a very good and light starter for summer. The saltiness of the cheese goes very well with the sweetness of the watermelon and the perfume of the mint gives a delicate aroma to this simple, fresh and light dish.

  • Prep Time : 15 minutes



Slice the watermelon and the fennel into very thin slices.

Peel the orange and slice it into thin slices too.

On a serving dish place the watermelon and the orange slices. Sprinkle with the sliced fennel and the feta cheese cut into cubes. Garnish with mint leaves, drizzle with olive oil and some freshly ground pepper.

Enjoy chilled.

    Dear Alida,
    Your description of your recipe is so inviting…couldn’t wait to read the ingredients. Love the flavors of the watermelon, fennel, and the feta cheese. Like you said the mint flavor must give it that pop. What a lovely, refreshing, and yummy dish this one is…plus I love the orange…super combo. and love the fact it is simple to create. Thank you for sharing…
    Dottie 🙂
