From our heritage in Bethlehem

Watermelon with Cheese (Jibneh webattikh)

This is a light summer supper dish very popular in Palestine. I had it very often growing up in Bethlehem on warm summer days. The white salted cheese complements the sweetness of the watermelon. Add to it a piece of fresh and warm Palestinian pita bread “Kmaj” to produce a superb taste that you will never forget!

This sounds delightful! I will need to try this. Is there a similar type of cheese that can be found in the US?
