Ingredients

  • 8 1-inch-thick slices watermelon, small wedges
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 jalapeño, chopped (for no spice, take out seeds, for spice, keep all seeds in)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 oz. crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 medium lime

Directions

  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Brush watermelon with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place watermelon on grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until it's warmed enough throughout to establish grill lines. Arrange on a platter.
  2. Sprinkle jalapeño, cilantro and feta over watermelon. Drizzle with honey and squeeze lime half over.
