Stovetop, Freezer

For Salad:
  1. Toss the Boursin cubes in the egg mixture, then in the bread crumbs until completely covered. Shake off excess crumbs. Place them on a parchment-lined tray and freeze.

  2. In a bowl, combine the diced watermelon, olive oil, basil and a pinch of pepper.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the pesto and mayonnaise. Scrape it into a squeeze bottle with a tip.

  4. For each serving: Heat the canola oil in a saucepan and fry 8 of the Boursin cubes until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

  5. On a plate, make a checkerboard pattern of 2 Boursin cubes and 2 watermelon chunks per row, using 8 of each item. Squeeze little dots of pesto mayo around the border.
