Let's Make It
Combine chickpeas, jicama and onions in medium bowl; set aside. Pour dressing into blender. Add fruit seasoning and 1/2 cup of the watermelon; blend 1 min. or until smooth. Add to chickpea mixture; toss to coat.
Arrange remaining watermelon wedges on serving platter along with the cucumbers and tomatoes. Top with the chickpea mixture; sprinkle with cheese.

Already cut-up watermelon, often in quarters or halves, can be found in most produce markets or in the produce section of larger supermarkets.
