I’ll take advantage of the days,
The sun provides it’s warmest rays,
To buy the fruit the farmer’s sellin’,
My favorite one, the Watermelon!
I know these flavors I repeat,
They’re just so good they can’t be beat.
Tangy, salty, super sweet,
They really are the best to eat.
Balsamic, cotija, honey gold,
Try them , try them, you’ll be sold!
I’m obviously on a watermelon kick these days, but I always am this time of year. This is, by far, the most delicious way to prepare it, especially for guests. Don’t forget to add a touch of olive oil to the pan as the cheese gets sticky. Grilled or pan fried Halloumi is also a good substitute, just a little sweeter than the salty Cotija. If anyone tries this, please let me know if you like it.
Watermelon sliced to serve
1 pkg Cotija cheese
Sweet Balsamic Vinegar
Slice the cheese about 1/4″ thick. Place in an oiled pan on medium low heat until the cheese takes on color and begins to melt. Take it out and place it on top of the water melon. Drizzle equal parts honey and sweet balsamic on top of the cheese, about 1 tsp. of each. Garnish with fresh mint and serve immediately. 1 package of cheese will serve 6-8.
