Grilled Watermelon, Feta and Basil Salad

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

Balsamic Reduction:

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.
