Grilled Watermelon and Feta


This is a little palate refresher, thanks to the combination of watermelon and mint. The fruit picks up an extra hint of sweetness when grilled that pops against the tangy balsamic glaze and feta cheese.

YIELD 8–10 servings
PREP TIME 30 minutes
10 minutes

1 tablespoon olive oil
½ tablespoon red pepper flakes
2 (8-ounce) blocks feta, cut into ¼-inch slices
¼ watermelon, sliced into ½-inch wedges
4 tablespoons balsamic glaze
2 tablespoons chopped mint

1. Preheat the grill to medium-high.
2. Combine the oil and pepper flakes in a small bowl. Baste the feta with the oil and set aside.
3. Baste the watermelon with the balsamic glaze. Grill for 3–5 minutes per side, until grill-marked.
4. Arrange the watermelon and feta on a platter. Garnish with the mint and serve warm.
