AVOCADO ON MY MIND
1 ripe avocado
1 wedge watermelon, seedless
1/2 lime, sliced
1 tablespoon feta cheese, crumbled
1 sprig cilantro
Open the avocado, discarding seed. Remove pulp. Squeeze lime juice over both halves to prevent discoloration. Chop avocado into pieces and place into a medium-sized bowl. Using a melon-ball utensil, scoop the watermelon into round pieces. Discard rind. Add watermelon balls to bowl, tossing gently. Sprinkle feta cheese over top. Snip cilantro to taste. Garnish with lime slices.
