Heavenly hors d’oeuvres: Watermelon and feta squares

Tiny, tasty, and oh so tempting, hors d’oeuvres come into their own at all manner of functions. From pre and post-wedding drinkies and nibbles, to setting the scene at a barbecue, these bite-sized morsels are meant to be popped into your mouth whole, and savoured as a prequel to other dining courses. The secret is to keep them small. Here are some suggestions:

  2. Cut the feta into 2cm or smaller cubes.
  3. Place the sumac, sliced olives, parsley, and thyme into a small bowl, and toss to mix.
  4. Place a feta square on top of each watermelon cube, and sprinkle with olive and herb mix.
