Feta-Fruit Appetizer
8 ounce blocks feta cheese
cups assorted chunks of peeled fresh tropical fruit, such as kiwifruit, pineapple, papaya, guava, or mango
cup smoked almonds
cup cubed honeydew melon
tablespoons snipped fennel tops or 1 teaspoon fennel seed, crushed
Pita bread wedges
  1. Using a melon baller or butter curler carefully remove cheese from the center of the blocks of feta to create "bowls" with sides about 1/2 inch thick. Hollow carefully to avoid cutting through the bottom. Transfer the scooped cheese to a small serving bowl.
  2. Arrange fruit, almonds, and melon in and around the hollowed cheese "bowls." Stir fennel tops or fennel seed into reserved cheese and serve with cheese bowls of fruit and pita bread wedges.
