  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

Steps

    Using melon baller, scoop out center of each watermelon cube from top (about 3/4-inch deep), and reserve for another use. Transfer watermelon cups to serving platter. In medium bowl, mix strawberries, olive oil and salt.
  • 2

Expert Tips

  • For a little extra sweet and tart flavor, serve the cups drizzled with a balsamic reduction. In 1 1/2-quart saucepan, heat 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar to a simmer over medium heat; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until reduced to 1 tablespoon. Remove from heat; cool.
