This Grilled Watermelon Salad is the perfect appetizer or side dish for a BBQ picnic this summer with all of your friends and family.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Feta, sliced & crumbled
First slice the watermelon into triangles, removing the rind.
Brush the top & bottom of each watermelon slice with olive oil.
Grill the watermelon slices for 2-3 minutes on each side or until grill marks appear. *(3)
Create a stacked salad with watermelon as the base & top with a slice of feta in the center.
Top with arugula, a sprinkle of feta, & a drizzle of balsamic & enjoy! *(4)
*1. Be sure to use a watermelon that isn’t over ripened.
*2. If you prefer thickened balsamic simply pour the balsamic in a pan & bring it to a simmer at medium heat, then reduce the heat to low once it begins to bubble & let it simmer for 10-15 minutes until thickened. I reduce between 1/4 & 1/3 cup, but it depends on how much balsamic reduction you desire.
*3. Don’t have a grill, but still want to try this? Try a panini press grill!
*4. Each stack is one serving. So 8 slices of watermelon, 4 pieces of feta, & 2 cups of arugula will serve 4 people.
