This is a breakfast appropriate dish. Or even brunch. serve with warm pita. I ate this alot growing up especially on a warm day. you will be surprised to see how well the cheese and watermelon complement each other.


  1. in a serving platter scatter the feta.
  2. layer the tomatoes on top.
  3. drizzle with a couple tbs of olive oil ( use more or less depending on your liking/ health consciousness)
  4. sprinkle with zattar or thyme.
  5. arrange watermellon around the cheese and tomato.
  6. warm the pita under the broiler (care full not to burn) for just 2 minute.
  7. enjoy!

I really liked this as a light dinner!!! Eaten with rice crackers to be gluten free it was enjoyed by both DD (toddler) and I. I won't make it for DH as I can bet it is not to his liking as fruit mixed with cheese doesn't look right to him. I used thyme as I didn't have all the ingredients in order to make zatar. I did eat the raggi (watermelon) separately but alongside and it did go well together with the feta cheese. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.

Wow! This was a delicious snack! I would never have thought this combination would work but I was certainly intrigued by the idea. I actually made it for one serving and used two small plum tomatoes and 4 small wedges of watermelon. My DH turned his nose up at it, but I was glad as I always say, "Good, more for me!" I wound up stuffing the pita with the mixture. Made for Ramadan 2009 tag.
