A mosaic summer salad with watermelon, kiwi fruit and Ranchero® Queso Fresco drizzled with a slightly spicy strawberry coulis is the perfect refreshing dish that can be served as an appetizer, salad course or a light meal. With barely any cooking involved, this fresh and fruity mosaic salad is easy to assemble in no time—you can even swap the watermelon and kiwi for other fruits to switch things up to give your menu some variety. The coulis can be made well in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to a few days.

If you want to serve this dish as an appetizer, buffet dish or passed appetizer at a patio party, you can skewer the fruit and cheese cubes on cocktail picks and instead of drizzling the strawberry coulis, serve it as a dipping sauce on the side. The strawberry coulis is infused with jalapeño chile rather than having it blended in, so it gives a subtle spicy flavor with just a little kick of heat. If you don’t like spicy foods or you have guests who don’t, you can leave out the jalapeño. I like to use a plastic chef’s drizzler squeeze bottle for drizzling the coulis, which you can usually find at any cooking supply store for a few dollars. If you don’t have one, you can also use a spoon or a small measuring cup with a little spout.
