Tamatim Tasties with watermelon, feta, mint


Vegetarian Starter or Snack, Serves 6
Preparation time: 15 minutes

To Prepare

Toast the cumin seeds in a dry frying pan until the seeds start giving off an aroma and almost start jumping out of the pan. Transfer the seeds to a mortar and pestle or spice grinder and grind them finely with the coarse sea salt and the peppercorns. Add the olive oil and mix well. The cumin oil will have more flavour if it is allowed to stand for a while so that the flavour can permeate the oil.  Arrange the snacking tomatoes and watermelon pieces together with cubes of feta, and season with freshly ground pepper.  Drizzle the cumin oil over to taste and garnish with the mint leaves.
