Grilled Watermelon and Mint Salad

Even sweeter and juicer than fresh, grilled watermelon plays well with sweet and sour blueberries and salty feta cheese and mint ties together[ all of the flavors. Serve the salad right away otherwise the salt from the feta will draw out too much water from the fruits and turn the salad into a less-than-appetizing soup.]

NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • Ten 1-inch-thick watermelon spears
  • Olive oil, for brushing

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Directions
  • Preheat the grill or grill pan to very high heat. Brush the watermelon slices with olive oil. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Cool slightly and cut into 1-inch cubes (makes about 3 cups). Add to a serving bowl with the blueberries, mint, vinegar and feta. Toss to combine. Serve chilled.
