A delightful snack or treat! Why not top watermelon with honey and lime-infused ricotta cheese!?


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pound seedless watermelon
  • 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup pistachos, chopped

Instructions

  1. Slice watermelon into 1/2-inch thick slices. Remove rind, then cut watermelon into rounds using a 1 1/2-inch round cookie cutter – you should get about 20 pieces. (If you don’t have a round cookie cutter, just cut watermelon into 1 1/2-inch squares).
  2. In a bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, honey, lime juice, lime zest and salt.
  3. Portion about a teaspoon of the ricotta mixture on each watermelon slice and top with chopped pistachios.
