Watermelon and cheese skewers
Pair Watermelon With This Hard Cheese

Combining fruit and cheese is a great way to explore salty and sweet flavors. When it comes to pairing a cheese with watermelon, it’s hard to go wrong with Manchego cheese.

Made with milk from the Manchega breed of sheep in the Spanish provinces of Albacete, Ciudad Real, Cuenca, and Toledo, this cheese is available aged outside the country as well.

The inside of Manchego cheese is pale in color and semi-firm in texture. It has a slightly salty and nutty flavor and a grassy aroma, which pairs great with juicy watermelon.
