We had two guests for dinner that were not watermelon fans. One was my mother who tried to escape trying this salad of Grilled Watermelon and Feta Cheese. Luckily, I was next to her when arranging our plates in the dining room. When she skipped the watermelon and stole the cheese I asked her why she didn’t want to try it. She said she just couldn’t get around the idea of grilled watermelon. I told that wasn’t the manners my mom taught me! And, she agreed to try it. Later on she admitted that she loved the dish – and brought the watermelon out to the table to finish it. You never know until you try it!
Grilled Watermelon and Feta Salad
- thick slices of watermelon
- thick slices of feta cheese
- olive oil
- salt and pepper
- fresh dill
- fresh mint
Lightly brush the watermelon with olive oil to prevent sticking to the grill. Grill long enough to heat the fruit and make a couple of grill marks. Top with sliced feta, a drizzle more of good olive oil, salt, pepper and fresh herbs. Enjoy!
This looks delicious. I’ve often eaten fresh watermelon with feta/boulgarit cheese on the beach in Israel, but I’ve never thought of grilling it before. I will definitely give it a go.
OH MY!!! this looks so yummy!! Thanks for all your hard work:)
