Grilled Watermelon Arugula Salad

Yield: 8 servings


8 slices seedless watermelon, 2.5 cm thick

Olive oil

8 cups arugula, loosely packed

½ cup red onion, thinly sliced

½ cup feta cheese

Balsamic Reduction


  1. Preheat the grill to a medium high heat. Gently press the watermelon with a clean tea towel to soak up some of the excess water.
  2. Cover one side with olive oil before placing them oil-side down on the grill. Brush the top side with oil. Grill over high heat for about 3 minutes on each side, until grill marks have formed.
  3. Place about a cup of arugula on each plate. Add watermelon on top, then sprinkle with red onion and feta cheese.
  4. Complete each salad with a drizzle of balsamic reduction and olive oil.
