I have friends coming at home tonight and want to do a fresh Appetizer before the dinner.
I just remember an interesting appetizer I saw recently in a magazine : a Veggie's Cube with fresh white Cheese, Water Melon and Cucumber ... let's give it a try NOW !!
It is so easy !!!! All you need is a sharped knife and a little bit of precision when you cut the veggies to make sure they all have the same size (almost the same size) ... and that's it !
Et voila !!
The most important is the COLOR ! I wanted to use Cantaloupe but couldn't find a good one, so I used Watermelon, Cucumber, Feta & Mozzarella.
I cut the Cucumber in cubes ...
I cut the fresh Feta in cubes :
Now the Watermelon:
And finally the Mozzarella. I tossed the Mozza cubes in a mix of Herbs (Basil, Mint, Parsley) with Olive Oil :
To finish, I assembled all ingredients like a Rubisk's Cube .... and place your creation into the fridge !
Et voila, bon appetit!
