One of my favorite things to do is bring flavors from other countries into my dishes. Dukkah is an Egyptian spice mix that truly adds a unique taste and texture to any dish.


Pecan Dukkah Dressing:


Special equipment:
a grill or grill pan
  1. Preheat a grill or grill pan to high heat.
  2. Toss the watermelon with oil and sprinkle with salt. Add to the grill. Cook until grill marks are pronounced on 1 side, about 3 minutes. Arrange on a large platter and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.
  3. For the pecan dukkah dressing: Add the pecans, sesame seeds, coriander seeds and fennel seeds to a skillet over low heat. Toast slightly until fragrant, about 7 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before adding the mixture to a food processor with salt and pepper to taste. Pulse until grainy and combined and reserve.
  4. Add the olive oil, honey, molasses, vinegar, lime zest and salt and pepper to a bowl. Whisk until combined. Whisk in 2 heaping teaspoons dukkah spice.
  5. Top the watermelon with the red onion, cucumber, mint, dukkah dressing, feta and avocado. Garnish with more dry dukkah and serve.
