Watermelon "Cake"

 

Serving fresh Market melon in balls and wedges is common, but stacking them together like a cake makes a whimsical dessert.  Don’t just stop at the watermelon…kick it up a few notches.  Make it a confetti cake with crumpled feta cheese and mint.  Drizzle a favored balsamic vinegar on top.  Rim the plate with fresh berries and peaches.  Serve it with a delectable pasty item and a glass of crisp wine or sangria from Glunz.  Shop the Market.  The possibilities are endless.
