Sweet juicy watermelon paired with salty feta, fresh basil, and tart lime juice is a refreshing and easy to make summer salad. Grilled watermelon is delicious, but just be careful not to grill it too long.
1 whole mini/baby watermelon
4 ounces feta cheese
Juice of 1/2 a lime
2 tablespoons fresh basil, sliced thin
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Black pepper to taste
Balsamic reduction for drizzling (See Below)
Or try our Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette Dressing
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey, pinch of salt
Bring the mixture to a boil in a small saucepan, then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 6-8 minutes or until it has reduced to about 3 tablespoons and is thick and syrupy.
Cut the watermelon into 1 inch thick slabs and lightly brush them with olive oil.
Place the slabs of watermelon cut side down onto a heated grill and grill for about 2-3 minutes per side or until marked and warm.
Remove from the grill and cut off the rind, then cut into 1 inch cubes.
Toss the grilled watermelon with the basil, salt, pepper, and lime juice.
Gently fold in the feta.
Drizzle the salad with the balsamic reduction before serving.
