Fresh watermelon bites with whipped feta
SmartPoints® value per serving
This might be the most refreshing summer appetizer of all time. Crisp, cool, juicy watermelon slices are topped with a creamy mixture of feta cheese whipped (in a mini food processor) with reduced-fat cream cheese. The finishing touch—a fresh basil leaf—is the perfect flavour complement. The bites hold up surprisingly well in the fridge, so you can assemble them on a pretty platter a couple of hours ahead and chill them until ready to serve. For a different taste, try mint leaves in place of basil.
Low fat cream cheese
